The motherboard supports "1600(O.C.)/1333/1066".

All the above memory is about the same price and I dont see the point in buying 1333Mhz when I can get 1600 or 2000Mhz and just downclock them.

I am certain I can get the 1600Mhz but not sure about the 2000Mhz I just want to make sure before I decide what to buy.

I think I've rephrased it so it's no longer a shopping rec. klj613, please let me know if I've maintained the gist of your question. – music2myear Feb 13 '12 at 22:55

Yes, the faster RAM will work. RAM speed is labeled at the fastest clock rate at which it will work reliably. It will also work when run at a lower clock frequency.
