My System Specs

Default Ram speed vs latency for gaming

Note: I've created a thread before, but it seems the link is broken and my post is not visible, hence the creation of this thread.


I would like to know how does the ram speed scales with the increased latency, for gaming performance specifically.

For example lets take DDR-1600 CL9 vs DDR-1866 CL10. Or DDR-2000 CL11.

Is it worth spending the extra money in getting a lower CL?


How about just ram speed purely for gaming performance? Worth it paying extra for a 1866 vs a standard 1600?
Ex: G.SKILL Ripjaws X F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 Memory
vs
Corsair Dominator Platinum 8GB 2X4GB DDR3-2133 240PIN C9 DIMM 1.65V Dual Channel Memory Kit

DDR-2133 vs only DDR-1600, but how much more performance you gain for paying over double?

In your opinion which ram brand, speed and specs would be the best bang for the buck for games? (I would like at least 16GB, mainly because I want to get a SSD and disable page file)

Thanks!
