8GB, ddr3

What's the better option? I don't know what the numbers mean so if you can help, please do it.

1600 is faster than 1333.

I wrote quite a bit more numbers. That isn't hard to understand.

I saw the numbers but the 1600 will still be faster than the 1300 you listed. You're really comparing a
1333Mhz CAS 9 vs
1600Mhz CAS 9.
Unless the price difference is big I'd get the 1600.

DDR3-1600MHz CL9 is superior than DDR3-1333MHz CL9. The first number in the following series represent the CAS Latency: 9-9-9-28

DDR3-1600MHz has a faster memory frequency, higher memory bandwidth and moreover less CL9 which denotes the memory is faster. Usually, lower the CL faster the memory. For a DDR3-1333MHz memory the CL is on the higher side, usually it is something around CL5 or CL6 for 1333MHz. So definitely 1600MHz considering the specs. Hope that helps.

1600/CL9 has a slight performance advantage of 1333 CL8, it has a bigger advantage of 1333/ CL9.....so the 1600/9 is better (or if in the budget 1600/8 would be even better)
