Yeah, low latency RAM is only worth the extra cash if you plan on overclocking it, or unless you're one of those people who absolutely needs everything to be the best.
I preordered my 3200+ Venice from ncix.com early cause I couldn't wait any longer to build a new system and I am desperate to try out the watercooling scene, plus there is speculation that the next batches of the Venice will lose their overclocking potential, much like the Winnie did, and I don't want that to happen.
