The guiding document is the motherboard's User Manual.

http://download.gigabyte.eu/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_ga-h61ma-d3v_v2.0_e.pdf

Do verify that I found the applicable manual.

Page 8 lists the supported RAM configurations.

However, there is also a note to go to Gigabyte's website for the latest information.

Likewise for the CPU.

Page 11 provides memory installation and configuration details along with two notes regarding CPU limitations.

Details matter.

Read all of it. The manual says max is 1333MHz however the latest support list ( all be it 2012 ) is saying ram with speeds of 1600MHz have been used example ( CMD8GX3M4A1600C8 )
and the table shows these - https://ibb.co/ZYZk8P1 ...

However my CPU limitations will only run upto 1333MHz as its a gen 2 intel and not gen 3.

So my last question - what is the best DDR3 2x8GB modules with speed 1333MHz ? ( im on a budget and browsing ebay )

Thanks for your advise.
