I'd get the fastest kit possible for the money.

No. It doesn't even make a difference unless you're on FM2 on the IGP

Faster memory does make a difference for IGP, at least with the 3770k igp I was running, & at least in benchmarks smile.gif

Memory can be a tough call for some, for benchmarkers it is worth the extra cost for a better kit, for many gamers it doesn't seem to make enough difference to be worth the extra cash spent.
Comes down to budget, priorities & needs/wants. For a gamer on a budget 1600Mhz mem won't hurt gaming, the gpus are the main thing followed by a cpu that won't hold em back, cooling to max it all out, monitor setup to enjoy it & storage, etc.
If the budget allows for a good mem kit, it may not make a big difference in performance but it sure won't hurt anything.

2x8gb or 4x4gb @ 1600- 2133. CL10 and under is what you want. If you can find a set of ram that can OC well from DDR3-1866, you're golden!
