One thing that helped me is that I used Newegg's Learning Center. Like, when I wanted to learn more about power supplies, I went to their Power Supplies page and then scrolled all the way down to the bottom and began reading, and then followed the link down there to see more information.

So, go to their Desktop Memory page, then scroll all the way down, and begin reading. Then follow the link to see more information. After you read this, many things that we say will make much more sense to you.

I'm only planning to overclock the CPU without changing the voltage but only the FSB. I wonder how much Cas latency matters in gaming and how much 4 and 5 make a difference in gaming like such in average FPS difference. Thanks.

Personally, I've noticed a huge difference with 1066 ram vs 800mhz. My friend, who has a similar setup, got the GSkill 1066 CL5, andhis comp is way more responsive than mine but that may be due to my RAM being beyond horrid. 800 mhz at 6-6-6-18.

Whoa. 800 MHz 6-6-6-18 sounds like naked budget ram. Is it?

Ok I have changed my mind to go from this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231122 to the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220335 but will it be better to have lower latency than to overclock the q9550 by 117mhz lol? Thanks.

Oh and is this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220335 faster than this one? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227420 Thanks. Although ten bucks difference doesn't matter as it has rebate and it has warranty while the other doesn't seem like it. Thanks. Oh and is the patriot one dual channel kit as it doesn't say that in the specs and it does for the OCZ?

Yeah, a 117 MHz overclock is kinda pointless. So, I suppose the Patriot memory would yield better performance.

Those blades aren't worth considering since most people are raving about the low-voltage blades. These aren't the low voltage ones. :/

Regarding the dual-channel thing: check out the Patriot memory's description in big bold text at the top of its Newegg Product Page:

"Patriot Viper 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PVS24G6400LLKN - Retail"
