if you had to choose between the 2 what would you pick?
this machine is primarily used for world of warcraft, a game that soaks up ram like a sponge

You will not get a noticable improvement from games with 2-gigs, only multi-tasking or CAD or intensive graphic/video programs tap that much RAM...

So I would choose the low latency RAM and have the best...Then later you could always add another pair...

To each his own, I chose 2gigs of Corsair Pro XMS XL at 2-2-2-5 for my rig...
I prefer the lower timings and high quality memory, but your right, either way won't make much difference fps as far as latency or going above 1-gig of RAM...

Yes, the 512MB Corsair TwinX Pro XL series uses double sided Samsung TCCD chips.

<A HREF="http://www.thecrucible.ca/reviews/xl3200pro/performance..." target="_new"> Here is a review </A> and they got them up to 275mhz at 2.5-3-3-6 timings. Pretty good for DDR 3200 RAM, if you ask me.

The ultra low latencies of the TwinX Pro XL puts it on the top of the performance pile.
If you are looking for the best performing dual-channel PC3200 memory, the Corsair TwinX1024-3200XLPRO is definitely the one to get.

Hi,

In reply to RichPLS post > Does that mean one 3D-rendering apps user should better go with 2 x 1Gb Value pc3200 than 2 x 512Mo High-timings-&-price DDR-400 ?
That's on an i865 chipset with a P4-C 3.0 being built mainly for optimum <i>Maya 6</i> use

For rendering... you dont want better latency, you want better quality memory. That means you want to run the memory at a safe working latency.

Standard latencies:
PC-4000 (DDR-500) (edited: No standard)
PC-3200 (DDR-400) CL3
PC-2700 (DDR-333) CL2.5
PC-2100 (DDR-266) CL2.0
PC-133/100 CL3 or CL2

Is the board we are talking about an nForce2 mobo?
February 16, 2005 11:33:54 PM

Sure there are !!

Systems that are built for data integrity require higher latency.
February 17, 2005 8:57:10 PM

If you consider the latency to be defined in terms of clock cycles, ECC + REG modules require 1 extra clock cycle.

Actually, there is no standard latency for modules above DDR-400.
