My new computer I built has an Intel 965lt MOBO a 6600 Duo core 2 processor and an Evga 8800gts graphics card. My 1gig RAM sticks ar 4-4-4-12 timing, I just bought 2 512's but their timing is 5-5-5-12. Should I return the 512's and get 2 more with the 4-4-4-12 timing. Need imediate response as I only have 7 days to return. Thank you.

You won't notice any difference at all, were talking seconds at best here. by the time you pay the restocking fees and everything it's not worth it.

Got the 5-5-5-12's from a local comp. shop, so theres no restocking fee. I went ahead and ordered the matching timed kingstons and saved $40 bucks from NewEgg...

lol then if thats the case, why not. Just want to add one thing here, if you buy 800MHz RAM and you have 667MHz or lower installed, it'll automatically be clocked to the lower speed.
