I selected an Athlon II X2 250 processor for my new computer build and I also selected a pair of DDR3-1333 (PC3-10600) sticks of RAM. However when I did some research on the CPU I read on the AMD website that the X2 line can only support up to DDR3-1066 (PC3-8500). Does this mean that my CPU will bottleneck the DDR3-1333 and that I should just go with the DDR3-1066?

P.S. here's where I got the Athlon II information (It's under types of memory supported)

No not at all. The speed of the memory will not be affected by the CPU speed, as you can easily raise the clock speed at which your RAM runs at.
