    Ok, i'm thinking of buying 2gb of ram but i'm a bit lost. I have a choice of 4 but would like to know the difference between them. Firstly, i will not in any way whatsoever be doing any overclocking so that is not a factor. The only difference between the following that i can see is the "CAS number" i.e. 2, 2.5, or 3. I would like like to buy the geil as its the cheapest, but would i notice a much improved performance if i bought the ram with CAS2 instead? Also, the G.Skill ram only has a difference of £6.....why? They are both made by G.Skill, both 2gb, both DDR, both PC3200. Only difference is one is CAS2 and one is CAS2.5. Why is there such a small difference in price? Which should i buy? Again i will not be overclocking at all
