1333Mhz vs 1866Mhz+ : )

Hi, I am going to build a computer in the future and I was just wondering is there really any hard down difference that I would notice between buying 32GB of 1333Mhz RAM as opposed to 32GB of 1600Mhz, 1866Mhz or 2133Mhz or 2400Mhz??


Am I really going to notice? I'm not a huge gamer. Not sure if that has anything to do with it. And I'm not sure if you compensate with something else like a SSD with 1333Mhz, its like having 1866Mhz RAM installed?


Any clarification would really help me out a lot. Thank you! : )

I think the answer seems to be theres not a huge difference and they were testing on games which I don't really do and on AMD, not Intel. So.... I suppose there's not much difference if I throw in 1333Mhz or 2133Mhz. I don't think I'd be able to tell or see the difference?


Thank you.

there is some difference, but it mostly in silicon tests, not in day to day things

Yeah, I'm not gaming much. I'm running Microsoft Office, Google chrome with a bunch of tabs open, itunes, winrar, watching movies, I don't think it will come into play majorly for me?
