    Default confuse about RAM

    # . whats the difference between data transfer rate and bandwidth ??? i thought the bandwidth is equivalent to data transfer rate but after saw a article in anadtech i come to realize that its not quite true .....:S

    # . can anyone describe whats ram latency and how does it works.... i heard that , the less is latency , the fast /* considering performance*/ that ram is ....

    yes, less latencey mens less waiting times. But, really, you can't feel this at all since it is all virtually the same these days. Also, the ram you buy most fit your motherboard, too, so get ram and motherboard and cpu and cpu fan at teh very same time. Don't think about latency and ram type much - it is small difference it gives overall unless you think that 1% difference is a lot overall in your system...basically, you won't feel any difference. However, what you WILL feel is how MUCH ram you put in your machine...If you put 4GB is much better than 2 GB ram - that is what you need to focus at.

    1GB ram these days is about $25 - so, if you can put in 4 GB ram then it is about $100. And more ram also means that you may extend the life of your computer 1 more year before needing an upgrade.
