My System Specs

Default Not RAM knowledgeable...

So I have a question:

How big of a difference does it make in performance between 1333 and 1600 speed DDR3 Dual channel RAM?

Reason I'm asking is because it's $10 cheaper for 1333 Patriot Sector 5 edition sticks of RAM than it is for the 1600 version. I'm not very smart when it comes to RAM so be kind lol

Cheaper is better if you're not going to push hardware.
