    Latency vs Bandwidth...

    So I'm sure this question has been beaten to the ground, but I'm running DDR2-910 at 4-4-4-12. Just wondering if running it at DDR2-1000 at 5-5-5-15 would be better for running games.

    Not really. In fact, you won't see much if any difference at all. 1 FPS more here, 1 FPS less there, it'll prolly work out about the same in the end. Worth the experiment for learning sake, but not worth it for actual use.

    Sounds good! That's what I kinda thought. I do find Windows a little more responsive though. Thanks!

    Yea, bandwidth doesn't have much effect at all on a K8. DDR2 is only a few % faster then DDR , clock speeds the same.
