OK, so I'm planning on building a new computer and donating my current one to my brother.
I thought I read somewhere that the clock speed or bus speed has to be the same for your memory, cpu-FSB and motherboard. Is his right?
DDR3-1066 vs 1600 or whatever. What dictates what type of memory I can utilize?
All the acronyms are fun.
Thanks for the information.

Pretty much what dictates your memory selection is the following:

1) CPU / Motherboard

2) System Usage - gaming, web surfing, and others.

If the CPU-FSB/Mobo's memory support maxes out at 1066Mhz, then that's the upper ceiling. Even if you were to add 1600Mhz sticks, the system would downclock them to run at 1066Mhz

DDR3-1066 vs 1600 or whatever. What dictates what type of memory I can utilize?


Looks like cryptodan has answered that for you.

THANKS! I thought the CPU/FSB was the limiting factor...more or less. Good clear answers, everyone!
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130583
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072
I use 1333, despite that the motherboard can support crazy OC'ed Memory, right?
Memory like this, perhaps? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233192
I'm also not sure about the PC3-106xxx. What does the PC3 part mean, with the different numbers?
I'm hoping to use the CPU/Mobo in the near future for gaming rig.

Also, will anyone recommend a minimum PSU for a setup with this (and other stuff, possibly)

Unless there is a better (in your opinion/with support)card in a similar price range.

With an i5-2500k, what memory standard am I limited to? 1333MHz?

PSU: CORSAIR Professional Series HX650 (CMPSU-650HX) 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC - $120 - This is a modular power supply so it is much tidier with the cables and it is also efficient.
