Best DDR3 Memory for 955 be

I've read a couple of topics on the matter, but doing so has only driven me into a state of utter confusion (similar to when one is presented with a McDonald's drive-thru menu and has to make a choice with a line of noticeably agitated cars behind you).
So let's get down to business. I am using the Asus M4A79XTD EVO and a AMD 955 BE. Is it better for me to simply purchase ddr3-1333 or should I opt for its better looking sister, the ddr3-1600? On to my next question: is it advantageous to purchase memory modules that were specifically designed for the AMD platform? And finally: is the 955 BE limited to only ddr3-1333 memory and will it/does it support higher speeds?

I was interested in purchasing the OCZ black edition 4gb memory which is ddr3-1600, but if it's better off for me to stick with ddr3-1333 then surely I will go for that instead.

  1. Best answer
    That board supports 1600. Memory is CPU vendor agnostic. Meaning it isn't designed for AMD or Intel specifically.

    Go for the OCZ DDR3 1600.
  2. Oh yes, I will do that with pleasure. Thank you viper.
