  1. I would pick 8GB 1600MHz.

    On NewEgg, 4GB Vengence kits are the same price for 1333 and 1600, likewise for 8GB.

    OK but what if you have to choose b/w above two? which one you choose and why?

    Performance-wise, the difference between 1066 and 2133 is only 1-3% in most real-world benchmarks. On the other hand, the multitasking smoothness between 4GB and 8GB can be a major leap depending on what you usually run.

    With my own usage pattern, 4GB would cause so much swapping that my computer would be effectively unusable no matter how fast it might be so the 8GB slower RAM would be a no-brainer.
