My Mobo and CPU support 1600mhz but 1333 is cheaper, with my budget starting to run away from me can I save a few quid and get 1333Mhz or is the 1600 going to provide much difference.

These are the components I'm looking to get
MoBo £94.97 Gigabyte SKT-1155 Z77X-D3H
CPU £89 I3 3220
GPU £160.24 Saphire 7850 2GB OC
PSU £65.85 Corsair CX750
Case £49.99 zalman Z11 blue
Wifi £15.22 TP Link TL-WN881ND 300Mbps Wireless N PCI Express Adapter

I still need to get a HDD and ram, think I'll skip the optical drive and just use USB.

The 1600MHz RAM maybe only around 5% better than the 1333MHz RAM. If budget is limited just get the 1333MHz.

GPU (HD 7850) is lower power consumption video card, yu can use the good 500W PSU that will be more than enough and saving some money too.
