    If you aren't going to OC,then go with the cheaper model,because timings/speed doesn't make a noticeable difference in performance, however if you are going to OC,then i would go with 1333Mhz CL7, because 1333MHz suffices for a good OC and you get lower timings too.
  2. I'd recommend you to get good 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM modules with CAS6 or CAS7 timings.. Best of both worlds..
  3. Yes but it seems the OP has only those choices
