I7 970 with 1333 ram or 1066 ram...which is the best
i have an i7-970 processor and i need to build a high speed computer for graphics and video editing
the only problem is i don't know which ram should i use.....i know the DDR3 1333 ram is faster but will my computer take advantage of it or it will be waste of money since my cpu memory is 1033 (3*1033 to be exact)
so which should i choose...please help

More about1333 1066 which best
what motherboard do you have? ddr3 1600 is prob ur best bet
Edit: Nothing is wasted. Just turn on XMP ( Extreme memory profile ) in BIOS and it automatically runs at the listed speed/timings.
bit newbie here.....isnt the ram fsb here is higher than the cpu? or since the cpu ram is 3*1066 that mean it doesnt matter
i7 does not matter. The faster the RAM the better.
then which is better
12GB 1066 or 6GB 1600

With graphics and video editing listed as your primary uses I would go for 12GB of DDR3 1600 myself. Faster is better and those uses are about the only reasons to use over 6GB. Guess I could have read the post better.
