Maybe this boils down to components being used (listed below) but I supposed my question is as follows - Performance wise, does the higher latency of the 3600HMZ stick outweigh its increased speed?

Yes, I know RAM is the last thing you should spend money on to increase performance, however its a $12 dollar price difference so money wise its a wash (i.e. please don't comment go w/ the cheaper one).

I seem to remember reading somewhere that slower sticks with less latency outperformed faster chips with higher latency ESPECIALLY on intel chips. I know this would be different for every system but I figure someone out there can possibly chip in a bit more. I'm a compsci major so this is more aimed toward my curiosity rather than a definite answer.

Anything is appreciated :)
