What's all the fuzz about latency ?

I use an RME Multiface and my setup has round 5ms latency also, and I 
can play my guitar together with all other instruments on the computer 
without any bad time feeling at all, and it's really only a problem when 
you use one or more outputs for monitoring, and your latency exceeds 
10ms. But if I use my amp for monitoring during recording, my experience 
is that latency is no issue at all.
