Get that one, it's better to go with a equal one.

There was an article about this on THG a few days ago. 2133MT/s DDR3 provides about 20% faster IGP performance on AMD's A10 than 1600MT/s RAM but the RAM itself is roughly 50% more expensive.

ok because i have an amd a8-5600k, and im using single channel 8gb ddr3 1600mhz ram, my brother has 2x4gb vengeance ram (1600mhz) and he gets much higher fps in games like just cause 2 and even minecraft,so does dual channel ram help..?

Yes, the dual channel is interleaved and somewhat faster as a result.
