I have already ordered an i5-12400F and MSI B660M Mortar Wifi board and am torn between buying a 2x8GB CAS 16 DDR4 3200 kit and a 2x8GB CAS 18 DDR4 3600 kit since they're pretty similarly priced. Don't really feel like spending way more for a 2x8GB CAS 16 DDR4 3600 kit. For AAA gaming I don't care too much, as I'll be targeting 60 fps and can't see 12400F plus either RAM kit keeping me from hitting that in AAA games. But for emulation I'll pretty much always be cpu bound so RAM choice could be pretty important. For emulation am I probably better off with the higher throughput of the latter RAM kit or should I care more about latency and pick the former kit?
