1.Cheaper PNY Optima 8GB 1333 CL9
2.Middle Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600 CL9
3.Most Expensive Mushkin Enhanced Redline 8Gb 1600 CL7
I like to surf with a Thousand windows/tabs open and programs running is there gonna be a noticeable difference between the 3?

ASRock motherboards are decent value boards. They are also Asus' value-oriented line. In day-to-day usage, and often in gaming, there is little performance difference between DDR3-1333 and 1600. The Mushkin has better timings, but you may not notice that much of a performance difference.

You can't tell the difference if you haven't used the speed 1333 and then used the 1600.

I would say you would see a increase in performance but not by much.

Tighter timings= decreased latency= faster ram
