Mainly for gaming, I want to have GTX570 to go with i5 2500 and H67 mobo, I'm not quite into OC or SLI yet there is only one problem: the H67 mobo supports only up to 1333 DDR3 RAM. Will it lag the performance of GTX570 as time being? I know RAM speed is not essential for gaming but wil it become the bottleneck? Thank you!

No, that RAM will not cause any bottleneck to the GTX 570.

1. Only onboard graphics require motherboard ram to run.
2. Only AMD's Fusion APUs have powerful enough integrated GPU to be no bottlenecked by ddr3-1333.
3.Discrete Graphics Card has their own dedicated memory, hence the advertised 1.25GB GDDR5 on GTX570s
4. as far as lag goes, it's more to the core than the memory.
eg. HD6950 2GB = HD6950 1GB in terms of performance on most resolutions

Thanks Greghome, I noticed your signature that you have i5 2500 and H67 mobo, is your 4GB RAM 2X2GB? What's the model of the RAM? And also just a little friendly curious why not GTX560 Ti but HD6950? :D
