    lower is usually better.


    <-- doesn't actually know what it is, but basically the ram can cycle through operations faster?

    Lower IS better.
    This is a very simplified explanation, but...
    It's how many cycles it takes for each operation to occur.

    lower CAS timings are better, but please note that the actual difference in performance will be negligible in real life. You will not be able to tell any difference in performance, when the sticks are used in otherwise identical machines.
    If the price difference is more than $50, go with the slower timings. If they are the same price, than go for the lower timing memory.
