|There is no reason to run your RAM faster than your FSB. So the answer is, the fastest is the tightest timings you can achieve at 1:1 ratio.|

Running 1066 RAM on a 300FSB system with 6-6-6-15 timings will not be better than running 600 speed RAM with 4-4-4-12 timings because the system will not be able to use anything more than 600 of the 1066 anyway.

Bandwidth plays a large part in performance be it AMD or Intel and while tighter timings may help there will be a cross-over point where C3 is out run by C4 on the Intel systems as is C2 is to C2.5 on the AMD... Memory Bandwidth.
The only way to find out what works best is to try it on each ones own particular rig as the components will interact differently even if identical rigs are setup.
Find the Max of the CPU, Mem and MB and then work the options.
