Solved [Memory] Is it worth buying RAM faster than 1600Mhz? Tags: Memory DDR3 RAM Last response: December 12, 2012 3:57 PM in Memory Share ibshortkid94 December 12, 2012 3:39:05 PM I am looking at 2 different types of RAM, one is 1600mhz DDR3 and the other is 1866mhz DDR3, but the 1866 is much more expensive for the same amount (16GB). Is it worth getting the faster RAM or should I stick with the 1600's?
