Thanks for the information. I have been building PCs for a long time, but I will straight up admit that my weakest suit is picking out memory. In the olden days memory was pretty much memory. I will be the first to admit that I have not really payed attention to timings or anything else when buying memory. I just get what looks like a good deal and stick it in. It has worked for me so far. I will admit, though, I am not really an over-clock fiend, nor do I usually end up trying to eek out that last % performance increase out of my machine.

With that criteria known, do you think it is okay that I do not worry too much about the details and specifics of my memory? As long as it is a good match for the bus speed and paired up should I be okay? Or are there some other key factors to look for, even if performance is not your primary goal?
