1333 or 1600 MHz RAM

Which DDR3 ram is better with price in mind? 1333 MHz or 1600 Mhz?


My PC configurations are :

AMD phenom ii x4 955 BE
ASUS m4a89GTD PRO/USB3


Also a suggestion on which brand to go for will be nice.

Currently i am thinking of G SKILL or Corsair.

  1. In my opinion it depends on exactly how much RAM you want to add:

    In the case of G-Skill then 4 GB (2x2GB) of 1600 ripjaws are in the upper $80's. But you can get 8 GB (2x4GB)1333 ripjaws for in the $140's.
  2. currently i am not thinking of more than 4 gb.
  3. Hi truegoon and welcome to Tom's forum.

    What exactly price do u have in mind?

    This G.Skill Ripjaws 1600 are very good for price/performance and works without problems in almost all mobos even without be in the QVL of the mobo.
  4. Thank you saint19

    Yeah,right now i am leaning towards Gskill 1600.
    Heard rave reviews about those...
  5. Same dilemma; I actually have both sets of RAM in my possession. Which one should I go with? The 2x4GB DDR-1333 RipJaws or the 2x2GB 1600? Both GSkill obviously. Win 7 Pro 64 Bit, AMD Phenom II 965 CPU 3.40Ghz, MSI 790GX-G65 AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard, Intel® X25-M Mainstream SATA Solid-State Drive - 160GB.
  6. ^2x2GB 1600.
