Question CAS Latency. CL2.5 or CL3 ?

Which is the faster/better type of ram, ram with a cl of 2.5 or a cl of 3? Oh, and is NON-ECC or ECC better? Just a couple a questions to help me decide which ram to choose

ECC is meant for big companies that cant afford failures, ECC is error correcting, so it also goes slower than non ECC, and the lower the CAS latency the better, so 2.5 is better than 3. so, get the 2.5 cas latency, and the NON ECC ram,
and BTW non ECC ram rarely has lapses' or fails, so ECC just makes the price go up on something you dont need.

ECC is slower due to the extra process of checking stuff. But 2.5 or even 2 os even better.
