I was thinking of upgrading my prefab dell pc because I had 8gb of ram but broke a 2gb dimm so now I only have 6. I used the googles and apparently the max ram my mobo can support is 16gb ddr3 1333. Can I just buy two 8gb dimms of say 1600? will the mobo just default and run them at 1333?

We need exact model number of your system to tell you this. Dell usually specifies the ram limits on their web site.

Take max DRAM and divide by number of total slots - i.e. 16 GB max 4 slots, can take 4x4GB - 2x8GB is a normal No.
