hi, I wish to purchase a new pc with the above specs. I am totally new to overclocking but I am willing to overclock the CPU in the future and I heard that I should keep a good RAM:FSB ratio. So, do I need a better ram If I wish to overclock my CPU to lets say 4.5 ghz?

Motherboard memory: Support for DDR3 2800(OC)/1600/1333/1066 MHz memory modules

Will ram speeds between 1600mhz and 2800mhz be compatible on this mobo?

Thank you!

grab latest haswell generation cpu: i5 4670K + Z87 motherboard + decent aftermarket cooler for overclocking...
at least CM hyper 212+ EVO , scythe mugen 4 is also great cooler for its price...
