Building a new Computer and im a little confused as to how fast of a FSB i need on my motherboard?

This is the motherboard im think of using.

MSI 970A-G46 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

With a AMD FX-6300

and G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

Im carrying over my old hard drive and Cdroms and stuff.

I was wondering if the FSB will be fast enough. or whether im going to run into problems.
I plan on overclocking this rig in the future, when i can afford to upgrade to 16gb ram and a water cooler.
So i dont know if this means i need more FSB or not.


Q1. Are the components of this rig compatible? will i run into any problems when uprading/OC?

Q2. As im totally confused on my FSB requirements. Is this board fast enough?

Q3. (side) will i ever really need more than 16gb of ram for a high end gaming computer? Worth it going to a 32gb board?

PLEASE HELP ME!

The motherboard does support the AMD Vishera CPUS as of BIOS update 1.10. Always check with the mother manufactures web site.

The FSB is no issue as both the CPU and motherboard are AM3+.

If this is for gaming even 16GB is a little overkill.
