Just got my new cpu and mobo, 3ghz E6850 1333 and asus p5k3.

i have here one dimm of 1GB DDR3 1066 64MX8 CL7-7-7, and i need another 1GB for sure.
How bad is this? Using 1066 with 1333 processor?

Worth it to buy another 1 dimm of 1GB?

i take it this is your motherboard - http://usa.asus.com/search.aspx?searchitem=1&searchkey=p5k3

look at my "signature" ....

Its the FSB that clocks at 1333MHz. You really should get another 1GB thou - to enable dual-channel.
Only the deluxe version of that motherboard supports DDR3-1600 PC3-12800.

Single chan. Dual chan.
1066MHz DDR3-1066 PC3-8500 8.5GB/sec. 17.0GB/sec
1333MHz DDR3-1333 PC3-10600 10.6GB/sec. 21.2GB/sec.
1600MHz DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 12.8GB/sec. 25.6GB/sec.
