Hi, i have been looking at the various parts and pieces online to build a computer and i believe i understand most of it, however i really have no idea what RAM timing or its latency means. If anyone could explain this to me that would be extremely helpful.

Read this article, kinda cool actually. Be sure to get ram that is compatible with your motherboard. Along with a cpu and case that are compatible with your motherboard. :)

Nice :)

If you want, you can post the list of the parts here sometime when you get done, and we'll all take a look at it. We always have good tips and suggestions. :)

When you get to buying, make sure you shop around. Newegg is definitely a great site, and popular, but not always cheapest. Make sure you check on other sites for cheaper prices. Some good ones are CompUSA, ZipZoomFly, TigerDirect, and OuletPC. There's also Ebay, but they can be unreliable. :)

Hope all goes well, Good Luck :)
