Specs: Windows 7, Intel Core i3-530 Clarkdale 2.93GHz
Looking at DDR3 1066 RAM...
...it looks like it would be only $10 more for DDR3 1333 RAM. But, I need clarification:

What's the difference between the DDR3 10600/10660/10666 RAM?

My guess would be the speed.

It's all in the way the RAM manufacturer rounds the bandwidth number.

For DDR3-1333, the correct bandwidth is 10666.6666. As you've found out, some call it 10600, some call it 10660, & others call it 10666. It's all the same thing.

I made an assumption that you wanted to know the difference between the 1333 and the rest.
