Hello, I need some advice on ram for my new build, my motherboard are cpu are:

Athlon II x3 440 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/191955
&
Gigabyte GA-MA78LMT-S2 http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Gigabyte-GA-MA78LMT-S2-A...(x16)-DDR3-1066-1333-SATA-3Gb-s-RAID-MATX-VGA

as you can see i need ddr3, but as you can probably tell from the cpu and mobo its a cheap system and i need cheap ram aswell

i read on some forum that with the 440 it can only take up to 1066mhz ram, dunno how true it is but probably doesnt matter anyway as i assume the 1333 will cost lots

im using my hd4890 in it aswell, any advice will be appreciated
