Ram confusion..

4-4-4-12

???

I have no idea what they mean.... I'm guessing lower is better?

Can anyone recommend some good ram from here please (2gb): http://www.memory-configurator.co.uk...acity-2Gb.html

To go with C2D 6300, p5b deluxe, 1950pro

I was thinking the 2Gb G.Skill DDR2 PC2-6400 PK Series 4-4-4-12 Dual Channel kit at £177...

Thanks in advance for any help :-)

Lower means tighter ram timings and faster performance. Higher equates to a faster HTT/FSB and higher clock speed when OCing.You can always loosen the tighter ram, but not so in reverse.

I have no experience with DDR2, but the Gskill and Geil look like the picks.
