how do timings make a difference? I know that more mhz means it is faster.

lower is better. But you don't really need to worry about it, you won't notice the difference.

But it does generally mean they'll be more overclockable as you can change the timings to CAS 5 and then increase the speeds.

where do you sell them? that isa decent amount of profit for a computer if you make one real quick from not so good components, what are the specs normally for these pc's that you sell?

My P5K has three. Two near the bottom of the PCB, and one near the I/O shield.

The 8800GT has 112 stream processors, the 9600GT has 64. There is quite a big difference between the two performance wise. Another option is the 8800GS has 96 SPs but 384MB of VRAM.

no it doesn't, increasing the cas is possible even if the original cas is not 4.

Yes, but you don't want to increase the timings too much otherwise it's not worth overclocking the RAM at all.
