Hi, i currently have 16gbs of ddr3 1333mhz i bought last year, but now 2133mhz ram prices have dropped a sh*t load, to around 50 bucks for 8gigs, i have a 2500k overclocked to 4.8ghz and play a lot of games and do a lot of video editing and photoshop and such, i don't have too much spare cash atm as i blew my summer money and have fall semesters starting, but i really like the ddr3 2133mhz memory, would 8gigs of it be worth it over the 1333mhz considering i can add more when i have more spare cash?

Thanks in advance for all of your opinions:p  <3

you wouldn't see a difference between 1333MHz and 2133MHz, so i wouldn't recommend it

There is no real world difference between 1066mhz and 2133mhz and up memory.

That is a very simple and great answer. You wouldn't see any change in performance except for maybe benchmarking but theres no real value in that

I have an i5 2500k and currently run 8gb of 1333mhz. I seen some benchmarks for my i5 with 1333 ram vs the 2133 and there is some fps boost with the 2133. I think it was around 12 to 15 fps more. I'm going to upgrade and do my own benchmarks. My z68 maxes out at 2133 mhz and I don't feel like upgrading my mobo anytime soon so I'll just do the minor upgrade

Yes, you should downgrade your computer for more performance, because less is more.
