(slightly) cheaper but faster.

An Intel CPU is preferred for Blizzard games as they are notoriously reliant on single-threaded performance over high parallelism and the GTX760 is not only a more power GPU in general, but it should prove better than AMD in Swordman online which has an nvidia orientated engine with PhysX

I'm aware, but considering the price its not really a problem. logic would assume that if RAM is capable of running at 2133 on 1.5V with decent timings, then when its reduced to 1600 but remains at 1.5V, then you should be able to be aggressive on the timings. While in most cases its wasted money pursuing faster RAM, it just happens to be the cheapest 1.5v, 8Gb kit at the moment.

You also have the chance of the motherboard undervolting the RAM.
