Default Low Latency...

Should I get Low-Latency RAM? I am deciding between getting this or this one (This one is LowLatency RAM). So, which one?

The default voltage is 2.5v. T1 (meaning one cycle) is the command rate.

The 3200XL has lantencies of 2-2-2-5 (1T) and the 3200LL has latencies of 2-3-2-6 (1T).

The 3200XL performs better than the 3200LL.

The cost of the hardware depends on the quantity that the retailer receives.

The module with the LED activity lights is the XMS PRO. The XMS PRO can be overclocked much higher than the XMS (in fact it is guaranteed to clock at 500 Mhz).
