Default Question about ram timings and integrated graphics

Do lower timings improve the performance of integrated graphics that borrow memory from your system ram? If so, do they improve the timings by alot or by a little?

It does... but not much.

If your running intergrated video, then timings are the least of your worries.

Iraq... whee.

Is ddr2 better for shared memory than ddr?

No, well it might, but it would not be worth it. You have to have to get what your system supports, DDR or DDR2.

If you don't have a Dell etc. PC than you can try lowering your timmings a little bit.

If you have the money to buy performance ram, than getting a mid range card would be loads better.
