Why is it that everyone will be willing to pay whatever and do watever to get some ram that can do 220-250 with tight timings, like 2-2-2-5. I'm sure you've all seen benchmarks, tight timings don't do much in games and normal stuff. I'm sure it helps in video encoding and professional machines, but why would a gaming rig need 2-2-2 timings? Higher FSB and HTT make more of a difference that extremely low timings. So why not do 2.5-3-3-11 or something at 250mhz, you won't see ur FPS or anything drop. And why are there such things as PC4000 and PC4200 when the base mhz in everything is still 200mhz or PC3200. Are they soley for the purpose of overclocking? By the way all of this is more of a question than an arguement.
