Default Free cas latency 9 ram?

In my new build I will be getting a asrock extreme4 mobo which comes with this free ram. I hope to be getting very high fps is it worth it to just use this ram, or will it bottleneck me?

It will be fine. My ram has the same speed and latency.

thanks, shaving that extra 70$ (along with removing ssd, and getting cheaper mobo) off my build will allow me to get

2x sli 670s :D

Depending on what your after and your gaming resolution I would likely opt for a single 670 (or 770 if it can fit in the budget) and the SSD.

Ram latency won't affect your gaming performance at all so you should be all set

Are you buying the 670s used though? If not I'd consider getting a 770 or even a 780 instead, leaves you the option SLIing in the future. With 670 SLI, you'll be stuck with it for good or have to deal with selling both cards down the line.
