Ram timing help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to upgrade my RAM from 2GB to 4GB. I hear that windows only recognizes 4GB in 64-bit so i'll be installing vista 64-bit when i get it. I have a question am I good with the same speed? My old RAM is a PC2 6400 or 800mhz. I'm getting the same speed but I see that the timings is different than my old one and the latency. Will this affect performance? This is my old RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820144062
and this the ram i'm looking at http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231098
I wanted to know if any of this would affect performance. Please help

you wont notice any performance in anything you do.
the only difference you would notice is in benchmarking.
the tighter the timings the better, or the smaller the numbers.
the numbers are the amount of time it takes the ram to start doing something, do something, and switch to the next task, if tht makes sense?

if you do add more RAM, you might notice that your computer doesn't stress as much when multitasking, since it has more RAM to spare
and yeah do get VISTA 64 bit, not XP 64 bit
you will notice more of an increase of performance with lower timings on the RAM
