I don't know why everyone loves the Vengeance. They really aren't that good. The timing and speed are generic and the heatsinks restrict the choices for CPU heatsinks. I like these for their specs and price.

They look ugly. Plus, the fast speeds are pointless without tight timings.

Lower numbers. That would be 8-8-8-24. Wiki it to see what it means. I think there's some RAM guides here.

On Sandy Bridge and other Intel platforms, speed. On AMD sometimes tighter timings with high NB frequency is better.

How about you tell us your budget and what mobo/cpu you are going to be using and we can help you much better.
