I was wondering if the MSI gd65 gaming motherboard is compatible with the 95$ tridentx 8gb dual channel ram from newegg? I only wonder this since on newegg the MSI board sais it supports 2400(oc) and I'm not sure if that means I have to buy 1600mhz ram and can over clock it to 2400 or if I can buy 2400 and run it at a lower speed until I can oc it back up to the 2400.

Yes it will support 1600Mhz RAM, all that means is that it's capable of supporting 2400Mhz RAM.

2400mhz out of the box or 1600mhz overclocked to 2400mhz?

It won't auto OC your RAM, it just means that if you buy 2400Mhz RAM that will work, your 1600Mhz ram will stay 1600Mhz
