True, the difference I would expect is less choppiness, due to the faster hard disk. I don't think humans can dicern 2.5x10^10 seconds (assuming latency is in clock cycles and it's 200MHz ram)

Really to see a difference in frames there has to be something like 7-15fps then you can start telling. But thats good that it seems to be faster.

A faster hard drive won't make a difference when you play the game, only for load times.

No memory timing wont not increase that, that much

However recently flashing your card would
