Ahhhh Ixnay on the PNY! RAM stands for Random Access Memory, it is the memory that your computer uses to store current information. So when people have a ton of windows open and only have 1gb of RAM, they get slow response times from their computer because the memory is loaded to capacity with information from all the windows open.
Faster RAM equates to faster response times. I have personally never seen the difference in real time applications because I havent been able to do any real scientific tests between "slow" and "fast" ram. If you don't plan on overclocking, you can go with any already fast set that has a lifetime warranty and good customer service in case something ever goes wrong.
The G.Skill Pi set is a great set of RAM. But is for the enthusiast overclocker. Not that it would be bad for your application, but if your not overclocking... i mean, its like never flooring a Ferrari if you had one... it looks nice, its fast as heck, but you only want to casually use it...
Maybe some others will disagree--thats how I look at it.
