Default Question about Ram Timing

I've searched around, but I can't seem to find a good article that explains exactly what ram Timing is and which perform better.

How would 3-3-3-8 compare to 3-8-4-4

Regarding to RAM timings, you will not notice a performance difference in any games whatsoever. With 3DMark(03/05) you may get a few more marks, nothing major. Mainly, you need lower RAM timings to overclock the RAM. That is why for people who do not overclock sould get value RAM.

Essentailly, lower RAM timings = farther overclock.

lower ram timings? you mean looser ram timings, cause lower=tighter, and tighter=not very good,

the last number really doesnt matter. so the first one 3-3-3-8 is better then 3-8-4-4

usually you want to get the first number lower, then the second two should be the same, and the last really doesnt matter.
