Sir,

I have a pc with following specification:

ASUS M5A97 Mb,
AMD Phenom II X4 970 CPU
Kingston 4 GB DDR3 /1333
ASUS 560 TI GPU
WD 500 GB HDD
CM 650 W PSU
LG DVD RW
Windows 7 Ultimate/64 Bit

Now I plan to change my RAM to 8 GB DDR3/1600 (4GBX2). But on AMD website, I notice that my present cpu support DDR3/1333. Is it any performance difference in DDR3/1333 and DDR3/1600? Please help.

your mother board cannot support a clock speed of more than 1333 mhz buying 1600 mhz RAM for your mobo would be a waste. to upgrade your ram speed you need to upgrade your MoBo.

To answer your question there is virtually no difference between 1333 and 1600 in most applications. Just add another set of what you have to get 8GB at 1333.

I think you are wrong. My current mother board is ASUS M5A 97, in ASUS website it is clearly written that it has :" 4 x DIMM, Max. 32GB, DDR3 2133(O.C.)/1866/1600/1333/1066 MHz ECC, Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory, Dual Channel Memory Architecture"
