on the subject of part validity[in terms of performance] how are my mem timings; 2.5-3-3-8 ?

if they are bad, is there any way to make them better [and for ram, is higher better (in terms of latency or lower) please advise]

2.5-3-3-8 is pretty normal for AMD / RAM latency timings [ lower is better by the way ].

2-2-2-5 is the best you currently get with DDR RAM although when used in conjunction with AMD CPU's it is normally 2.5-2-2-5.

Yeah, 2-3-3-6 is good enough not to cause any major RAM bottlenecks. There isn't any real noticable performance increase between 2-3-3-6 and 2-2-2-5, but if your really into OverClocking or hardcore computers in general, then 2-2-2-5 is what those people go for.

you guys are talking about AMD, what about intel? is it the same? I tested mine, and I got 2.5, 3, 3, 6.
Is that good for an Intel?

2-2-2-5 is the lowest you can currently get with an Intel System.

Your RAM type and manufacturer will be a significant factor in your latencey timings & whether or not they are "any good".

Good enough not to cause any major problems in day to day use.

What is the best rank and what can I do to get close to it? Is 2.5, 3, 3, 6 a common rank for all Intel Systems ?

Well, I also have 2.5, 3, 3, 6 . May be a common rank.

are you intel and using ddr2?those are terrible!
inmy bios, there were options to change memory timings,but i got the 3 beeps of death, reboot, three beeps of ddeath [you get the picture] and i had to clear cmos...
otherwise, other than fiddling around in bios, replacing stick would be what i reccommend

Sorry for my bad English, but I`m not clear in what you said about replace the stick. You mean I have to change the RAM? I`m using a Laptop and I have 2 RAM sticks : one 256 and one 512. But I dont know if they are DDR 2 or what . Can someone give me some advice.
