  1. They are both about dead even, the 1600 has wider bandwidth, but at a slower turnover with the loose CL of 11, the slower freq 1333/9 might slightly outperform the 1600 sticks as it will perform more actions in a time period that the CL11 - ideally you would want a minimum of 1600/9 or better as an entry set of DRAM w/ todays systems
  2. Well these two are only ones i can manage in my budget...
  3. Overall performance wise I'd go the 1333 set
  4. I am ordering two of either 1600 or 1333, won't the dual channel performance of 1600 will be better.
  5. Best answer
    Whatever you order, get a single package of the amount you want, there's no guarantee to packages of DRAM will even play together, and the 1333/9 will still outperform the 1600/11
