why is the price of memory with the same frequency different?

There is almost no performance difference between 1333 all the way up to 2133.


Unless you believe some of the statements various parties have made about BF4. Or if you happen to be running integrated graphics in which case faster ram is usually desirable.

People did some testing and they were able to replicate those results but only when playing at low settings where the RAM becomes the bottleneck instead of the GPU. With faster RAM people could get 100-110 FPS instead of 80-90FPS. However, once you turn up the settings there was no difference because the graphics card becomes the weakest link.

The only reason to get higher clock RAM is if you're doing some serious video/audio production. In that case, higher clocked RAM is helpful (as is more RAM in general),but otherwise, 8GB 1333 should be fine for most users.
