diff between 1,066MHz RAM & 667MHz???

by bizzton3k - 11/20/07 12:33 PM

Hello all,
I was just wondered what difference I might notice in an hp versus gateway with 3GB 1,066MHz DDR2 SDRAM 3GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM.
I think the hp might have higher quality, but the gateway's 1066MHz ram will be faster with CAD applications.

Also, how much difference would I notice with a 350 versus 400 watt power supply.

Thanks!!!
