Processor FSB and memory Frequency

I've tried to find an answer on other sites,but I still don't know a thing...
My motherboard have supported RAM frequency 1333(O.C.)/1066/800 Mhz for DDR3,and also the same frequency on FSB for the processor.Now I want to upgrade my computer.Do I need to get a CPU and a memory stick with the same frequency?I mean...the RAM frequency should be the same or lower than the CPU's FSB?Or it don't matter?

    The current processors run on QPI instead of DMA. Just don't worry about anything. Grab a decent processor and its compatible graphic card, and RAM of your preferred capacity and speed and GPU if you are into gaming.
