Memory Standard

My board that I ordered: ASUS M5A99X EVO AM3+ AMD 990X
The memory standard is: DDR3 2133(O.C.)/1866/1600/1333/1066

So I was wondering, will I see much of a difference between the 1600 vs 2133 when playing BF3? Right now newegg has a deal for ram 16gb clocked at 1600 for $44, but the one I was aiming for is: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) for $99

Thanks for any input in advance.

I guess I just found my answer, the speeds aren't what really make a difference, if overclocking is not involved the system defaults to 1333, so its pointless to get RAM when all I do is game. I already have a bulldozer quad core and a pretty sleek board so I may as well stick with the 1600 so that I may attempt to overclock it slightly in the future.
