|I'm building a computer and have got a Asus M4A79XTD EVO mobo that supports upto DDR3 1800 (O.C.).|
However as for the processor I'm putting into it, a "budget" AM3 Athlon II 425 X3, I looked on cpu-world.com out of interest and notice most of these AM3 processors (well, the ones I looked at anyway), it says at the bottom of the page "The fastest supported memory is DDR2-1066 and DDR3-1333"
The price difference between DDR3 1333 and DDR3 1600 however is negligible, and I was just going to spend a few pounds more and get the 1600. But will this processor work with 1600? I don't really understand what they mean by "max supported".
Do they mean it'll ONLY work with upto 1333 RAM and if I put anything faster in the mobo it'll refuse to operate?
