Without knowing your system and what your primary computer use is- you may get little benefit by going beyond 1600MHz.

Hello Bruce,
My main use for my computer is gaming and school work. Also being on the internet and things like that.

In gamming there is no appreciable difference between 1600-2400. Same for working. There are one or two applications that will benefit from a faster memory (winrar for example)

Faster RAMs does wonders for AMD APU graphic engines...

Otherwise, better timings = more importance than clock speed.

Not a great deal to be gained, there, unless your 1600MHz RAMs are seriously high latency ...

Well it is corsair vengeance ram. So I was looking to get something that may be a little faster. Any suggestions?

There is simply no practical gain on the desktop. You might see higher numbers while benching synthetics but nothing in the 'real world'

That's what I've kind of heard. So would a lower latency ram be more beneficial?

Assuming you are CAS 9 --- not really.

16GBs is plenty, too. You've got room for a RAM drive, there, if you were so inclined and wanted to do some tweaking. 8GB is a sweet spot for gaming, surfing and school work.

Spend your money on something else. No real gains except for benchmarks. Get an ssd if you don't have one - you will feel that difference.
