Maybe a few frames per second. Nothing substantial.

Depends on the platform, Ivy, no, Haswell, a little. If you are using an A-series APU, then faster RAM is VERY important, then even 2133MHz is worth it!

If the price difference is not too large, then you may as well go 1866MHz and higher timings.

Novakue, did you answer in the "Your Answer" box below or did you do hit "Post an Answer"?

Doesn't seem to be advertising as it leads back to a forum tutorial. I would put it down to a forum glitch, randomly linking tutorials. I'v seen it happen a few times around the place.

Then 1600MHz is fine, but if its a small jump in price to 1866HMz, get that.

What exact chips you looking at?
Liniks would be useful..

With that large a budget, DEFINITELY get 1866MHz RAM.

Get ACTUAL 1866MHz RAM and mobo. Asrock Extreme 6 Z87 is good.
