Is this:

compatible with this:

And can someone explain to me what the ram frequency ratings mean? The motherboard memory standard is listed as: DDR3 1066/1333/1600*/2133*(OC)

The RAM I linked says DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)

What does it mean? Does the PC3 10666 mean anything?

(yes newb)

Yes those will work together.....Its just what it says its the speed at which the ram runs....PC3 10666...10666 is the memory bandwidth...PC3 means I believe version 3 or perhaps triple channel...Most all memory comes as 1066 or 1333 native when you see 1600(OC) or 2133(OC) those are 1333 modules that are OCed from the factory and have been tested and passed at that particular speed and latency
