Well currently in my maching (should see in my sig.) has 2gb of patriot ddr2 800 RAM with CAS 4 timings 4-4-4-12...just running stock as of now. I want to add 4 more GB of RAM for a total of 6GB, but I'm trying to decide what ram I want. My budget is at most spending 100 bucks, but i'm not sure i wanna spend that much. I was looking at 2 different patriot rams, one is cas 5 with 5-5-5-12
and one was cas 4 with 4-4-4-12
....the first set is only like 70 bucks, the second about 95 bucks...would the first set, the cas 5, slow down my other 2gb of ram, or be slow in general since they only have a cas of 5 instead of the faster cas 4?
also if anyone has suggestions of good ram, much appreciated....i was also looking at some ocz reapers for about 100 bucks
but these are 4-4-4-15...any big difference?
also if someone could briefly explain how to change timing settings and ram voltage in bios..that'd be superb!
