new guy here, and apologize if this has been discussed before, i didn't find anything...

does the memory speed make a difference for an e8400 I'm planning on getting? because i've looked everywhere about info on this and it doesn't seem to matter. i currently have a e6600 with DDR2 1066 5-5-5-15 patriot RAM and a DFI x38 board... from what i've read this ram will run with the e8400 but will DDR3 1333 make a difference??? idk, i'm so lost on how memory works these days...
