I also have a qustion about RAM latency. I havent built a computer since '03 and havent kept up with this stuff. Why is the latency higher on DDR2? Is it because the throughput is greater? Also, since I am building this computer with a mobo that will support multi-core CPU's I feel like it is a good choice for future upgrades, but when will DDR3 become more standard and how much better is (if at all) is it then DDR2?
edit- looking for PSU between 500-650W.
