Hi folks,
I thinking of buying an overclocked bundle of a CPU, mobo and ram. It's an MSi mobo with an overclocked i7 4770k 4.4ghz and 8Gb of DDR3 1600mhz ram all for aorund £500.00. Will i see any improvement if I chose the next bundle up that has the same CPU but the ram is 2133Mhz but it's another £100.00? which I don't really want to spend any more?

Many thanks

There is almost no difference, not worth £10 let alone 100.

No i'm using my current GPU of an ATi HD7970 Ghz edition card. So I may as well go for the 1600Mhz RAM then?

many thanks for your response.
