That's one thing I don't uinderstand about RAM and that is rating of the memory speed like DDR400, DDR500, etc. and then there's the actual latency speed. Obviously, the faster RAM you get (ie, DDR550), the latency is increased. So with that in mind, would it be better to go with a DDR400 with lower latency? That is the question.

What about this one? I'm trying to balance the speed and latencys:

G.SKILL 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 550 (PC 4400) Dual Channel Kit System Memory - Retail

I know that in raw data transfer, Mhz is where it really counts. I have seen memory with a high Mhz and slightly higher timings score better than low Mhz with better timings. I was figuring I could probably lower those timings on the corsair. What do you all think?

I think the ratings go DDR400 because it is dual channel with each running at 200Mhz. They take the 200 and times it by two to get the rating (another ex. DDR500 runs at 250Mhz).
