For game play or everyday use? No. For benchmarking, yes. There is little to no difference between 1333 and 1600 MHz.

performance wise not really with the same latency they will operate within 1-15% of each other. depending on the applications used.
if the 1600 has cas 11 but the 1333 is cas 7 in some cases the slower ram will actually perform better then ddr3 1600...
raw speed isnt always the deciding factor more often than no slower speed but more efficient will work just as well.
