Default RAM: Difference between Standard Corsair (PC3200) & Corsair CMX PRO (PC3200)

Is there a difference between the two? The CMX Pro is $200 more for the same capacity (512 Mb) and same speed (PC3200).

get the CMX pro if you want to spend the extra dough, it is better but the regular corsair is also very good.

I would go with the regular Corsair, the CMX Pro runs at high speed, low latency, is more stable but the regular corsair is stable, low latency and fast. The average gamer wouldn't notice the difference between the two.

The CMX Pro will most likely require you to manually change CAS settings within BIOS also.
