Hello,

Well one of your friends are wrong. RAM speed doesn't make much of a difference. The amout of RAM does though, as well as whether or not it's in dual channel configuration or not.

Do you plan overclocking? If not, get the cheaper 1333Mhz ram.

I have corsair vengeance 8GB 1600Mhz RAM and to be honest theres not much difference between 1333 & 1600 for me personally. Stick with it unless you have having performance issues. Whats you specs?
