Default Re: Woot????

Look, forget your friend for a minute. You want to overclock your computer and want to buy new RAM and CPU. How long do you think that expense will last you before you decide to over over clock!
When you initially buy something know what's the limit. Maybe next year at this time what we have now will be slowwwwwwwww. Instead of spending, just be patience and wait till the prices go down and buy a mobo, cpu and RAM that have potential. Never put too much on old equipment.
I'd wait for the right occassion; you shouldn't be in need of speed that much. OC will only give you so much which is not always wise if you didn't initially purchase your system with the idea of OC.
And for the cas latency of a RAM, the lower the figure, the faster it is.

Jack, seems to me you hate everything I like. Besides, Rosewill is pretty stable stuff that has good reviews.

Umm, best RAM in the world currently, tests prove it!
(as far as DDR400 PC3200 goes at least)

Rosewill is a VERY GOOD company. Their GPUs are stable and well made (I have had one based on ATi 9800XT and it was GREAT!) I currently have a DVDRAM/+-RW RL drive made by them in my new PC, and it is fast, highly responsive, and DEAD SILENT
