Default Ram

What would be the best RAM out on the market today that would give me the lowest latency settings?

They have 1Ghtz ram (DDR2). Rambus is the fastest (XDR - extreme data rate) runs at 3.2 Ghtz to 8 Ghtz (really expensive)

BH-5 chips will get you the tightest timings around easily with enough voltage.

if you aren't overclocking then BH-5 means nothing to you and neither does tight latencies.....if you arent overclocking you might as well just save cash and stick with valueRAM.

Tighter timings do increase performance a little even when your not ocing.
