is it better to have Enhanced Bandwidth memory, or Enhanced Latency (pc3200 @ 2-2-2-5, or an OCZ pc3700 / pc4000)

Because you have enhanced latency, the bandwith increases. I'm pretty sure they're the same thing.

no they are not the same, Latency is your CAS timings, how long it takes to access the memory. Bandwith is how many mhz your ram runs at once it gets the data. Sorry I cant answer your question, I dont know which is better.

If you're not going to be running the memory at PC-3700 or 4000 speeds (233 or so or 250 MHz), which is most likely, get the low latency PC-3200.
