If u can use both types of RAM, u can only have installed one or the other when u running the PC.

Its OK, because the mobo will down clock the RAM to 1066MHz.

To get it to 1333MHz, u would have to OC the RAM, but don't bother, the difference is not noticeable with your eye.

The difference in performance 1066 vs 1333 is next to nothing.

If u really want to speed things up, get an SSD and it will knock your socks off : )

DDR2 option was good for people that already have the RAM from older system.

DDR3 is faster,

but on your set up the difference would be noticeable only in the benchmarks, and those are far from reality.
