Always buy ther lower latency. If needed you can loosed the timings and get the same speed. Plus they always charge more for higher speed rated memory.

I can get 1150mhz @ 5-5-5-15 or up to about 950 @ 4-4-4-12

which my current clock of 425 FSB I 850 or 1065 are the attainable speeds

On current intel setups higher bandwidth is preferred usually

Oh sorry i misread the question. Just do a few benchmarks at each speed and see which nets the best benefits. I just keep mine stuck at 1:1 synchronous which is usually 800-850 with 4-4-3-8 timings.
