CAS Latency question

  1. Hello! I would like to know how noticable would be the diference between a CAS Latency 5 from 7, I never understood much of this timings but AFAIK the lower the better right?

    I ask this because I'm willing to buy 2x2GB of DDR2 1066 memory and brands and speed seems to be good but there's a price difference of $32 after MIR, is it worth it for just a lower Latency?

    here are the products I'm looking at:

    the ram with the lower timings will give you quicker response in some instances but if you're not doing anything concerning a system made for gaming you wouldnt notice the difference by "eye" too much.

    the CORSAIR DOMINATOR should be the better, faster.
