There is no difference between 1333 MHz and 1600 MHz that is noticeable. Unless the 1333 MHz memory is the same price, I'd stick with yours.

Note that your H77 motherboard doesn't support overclocking (which is fine, since you have a locked processor), but it also will only have a single PCIe slot. So you won't be able to get a second video card later if that interests you. As for the RAM speed, you might as well get 1600, since it tends to cost the same as the 1333.

Well Im building a new computer just like you. I bought some parts at frys electronics after looking at newegg. NOW I finally found the combo search function in newegg. USE IT. you can save $10-$30 on each pair of components you need. thats a good way to save. for example, buy you cpu+mobo combo (if you find one you like), hdd + ram, etc. in any order. OR if you see something you like, you can buy a complete DIY combo with all the parts you need.
