Default RAM properties

I am trying to decide on the ram for my new rig and I'm torn between Corsair XMS, Mushkin, and OCZ.

To remedy this, aside from generic suggestions, I'd like to know the different properties of RAM...


This is some OCZ I found

Speed: DDR400(PC3200)
Type: 184 Pin DDR SDRAM
Error Checking: Non-ECC
Registered/Unbuffered: Unbuffered -Registered a good quality?
Cas Latency: 2-3-2-5 1T -WHAT does 1T mean and how does it affect everything?
Support Voltage: 2.6V -Do you want higher or lower, what's a good standard voltage?
Bandwidth: 3.2GB/s -What is this and what does it do?
Organization: two 64M x 64 -Bit
Special Features: Ultra Low Noise shielded PCB -Uhhh, what?

Suggestions, anecdotes, and Tutorials appreciated. Thanks!

I think you just answered your own question. Those are all the important properties or RAM. Nothing to worry about.

If you think that, you didn't read my questions.
