Default RAM i want lower latency is it worth it

I have exilir ddr400 i dont know how good it is but it goes 3-3-3-8
Would it be worth it to get corsair 3200XL (i think thats it) it does 2-2-2-5

Yes, that thread was awesome. It really helped me rethink the way I go about building computer systems. My next system will be all price/performance!

That thread saved me $75 from my memory upgrade. Was able to roll the money into anime DVDs and medical expenses (damn sinus infection).

I'm running a mis-matched pair of 512 mb PC3200 (One is Samsung 2.5-4-4-8 and the other is Hynix 2.5-3-3-8) on 2-2-2-5 timings and I don't have any problems.

System is an A64 S939 3200+ on an Asus A8V Deluxe.

Save your money, read that post, and save even more money!

Great deal on RAM today:

You can't beat Corsairs warranty and RMA process either.

Default Re: RAM i want lower latency is it worth it

I WANT THAT MEMORY! My dad RMAed my Kingston 512MB stick for a refund (it was a Christmas present) and I'm getting the value back in a NewEgg GC and I was going to use it to fund a purchase for this exact memory.

Sigh. They got it yesterday, but it takes another 2 or 3 days for them to come to their decision or whatever. Fooking crap, if you ask me. I want my money back. Get the memory, give me back my money. I don't have to wait 3 days for a return at Best Buy.
