Specs on first buld (need help)

Trying to find the correct ram for my motherboard. The board supports xmp I'd like the ram to do the same just in case I decide to overclock in the future. The base numbers recommended are DDR3 1333/1066 ECC,non-ECC,un-buffered. All I can find is /10600 or /10660 or /10666. What's the deal on the second set of numbers? Since the board will support up to DDR3 2000 in overclock do I choose a higher speed stick even if I don't overclock until sometime in the future? The second problem I want to install a SSD. The board supports SATA 3Gb/s but again (on newegg) I can't find one with the 3Gb/s for the interface. Is there another term for SATA 3Gb/s? i7-920 2.66GHz LGA 1366 130W
ASUS P6T7WS Supercomputer
SAPPHIRE 100281SR RADEON HD 5870
LIAN LI PC-PSO BLACK ALUMINUM ATX
FULL TOWER
Any help is appreciated, if you see any problem with the rest of the build, please let me know.

  1. The last number is peak transfer rates (theoretical).

    Here this should help.

    SATA 3gb/s is also called SATA 2.0 or SATA II
    SATA 6gb/s is called SATA 3.0

    Here, let's make it easy:

    Kingston 1333 XMP 3x2gb
    171.99 Newegg

    Intel x25-M 80gb
    289.99 Newegg
  2. Going more than DDR1600 is kinda a waste unless you plan on hitting 5 Ghz with LN2. Simply pout, get the best timings you can afford. CAS 6 is the Mushkin 998691 at about $245. CAS 7 can be had at about $189
