However for the sake of knowledge, its the CAS timings that will really impact your system. 7-8-7 is a timing that has been discontinued by most RAM manf because it is incredibly fast really not needed, not to mention much more expensive than slower timings. Consequently your 9-10-9 timings are much slower but not enough to make a difference in your games.
The only thing i guess that would influence your decision now would be.
1. If you insist on getting the very best.
Outcome: buy the 1600 one
2. If you wish to overclock by massive amount.
Outcome: buy the 1866 one so you have more overhead to overclock and preserve a fast clock rate.
sorry i didn't make myself clear. I do have the ram, they are 1600mhz at 9-9-9-24 (1.5v). what i meant is that i can acomplish both setting with a little xtra voltage, which one would benefit me since my ram can do both. For all around best perfomance the better timing or faster speed.
