I'm planning on buying a new system...I've heard about CAS but am not sure what it means...should this be an important factor in my memory purchase?

Thanks:p

What does "CL" stand for?
CL stands for "CAS latency," which is the number of clock cycles it takes before data starts to flow once a command is received. Low CAS latency is faster than high CAS latency. However, faster memory will NOT necessarily make your system faster. Your computer will only run as fast as the "slowest link" in your system, so you can't speed up your computer by adding memory that is faster than your current memory. The way to make your system faster is to add more megabytes (MB) of memory.
If you're building your own system, we recommend using parts with low CAS latency.
