Default Best Memory???

Hi,
Just a quick 1, Looking at getting ONE of the following, could you please give me your thoughts as to the best. (i.e. Haven't a clue about the Last numbers and what they do, tried looking through NET but got even MORE confused!! )

Kingston 2gb (2x1gb) Ddr2 1066mhz Hyperx Memory Cl5(5-5-5-15)

OR

Kingston 2GB DDR2 1066MHz/PC2-8500 HyperX Memory CL7 (7-7-7-20)

Thank you,
Shaun.

Luckily G.Skill is coming out with Cas 2 DDR2 to overcome the current leader in memory: The Elephant.

I've never seen DDR2 1066 with 7-7-7-20 timings. It's kind of ridiculous.

The 5-5-5-15 timings make it faster, therefore better. :P

This is where I found them,
Kingston 2GB DDR2 1066MHz/PC2-8500 HyperX Memory CL7 (7-7-7-20) - Ebuyer

Thanks, Thought it was better to have Lower numbers for faster speeds, BUT wasn't 100% Sure. Thanks again,
Shaun.

I've been checking out this site:

HardwareGuys.com Messageboard

They suggest Kingston or Crucial memory, and using the memory configurator on their site to choose a particular model.

I think this site focuses on reliability rather than gaming components.
