4-4-4-5
vs.
3-4-3-9

3 is faster then 4 but why are you ignoring the 9?

Iíll use a Neanderthal comparison:
3+4+3+9 = 19
4+4+4+5 = 17

Thats not the memory card that Im suggesting that you get... youre looking at the 1066MHz Corsair, Im looking at the 800MHz Corsair. This one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145035

The Neanderthal comparison doesnt exactly work in this instance... the Cas Rating of the GSkill is 4... the Cas Rating of the Corsair is 3. Its rated the fasted card on the market.

Ok I need to go now something popped up.
Thanks for the help and I would be glad if some people would write some more thoughts about the rig I was offered by the store or just propose a new rig.

I'll have time to discuss about his again tomorrow.

I see your point Daut, but I think Front Side Bus and memory speed are two different things...I think
