Default Reccommendations on RAM

I'm looking to buy some RAM with these specs:

8GB
1600MHz
DDR3
Preferably under $200

Anyone have some suggestions?

Also, is the speed (1600MHz) of RAM really significant? Should I spend the extra money on 1600MHz or just stick to 1333MHz?

My System Specs

Default

Is that 8gb 4 sticks or 2 sticks?

the difference between 1333 and 1600 is not noticeable at all, if anything timings matter more and even that isn't noticeable.

NCIX has 2x2gb mushkin silverline $43 after $10 MIR on the black friday sale page, you could grab 2 of those for 8gb $86.
