Hello people i'm new to here. I got MSI X58A-GD45 and XEON X5660 from one of my friend. I need help with memory configuration :)

Ultimately i need to go for 16GB RAM setup. But before that i need to confirm that CPU and Mobo works fine. So it would be great if i can configure it with just 8GB and if it's work well i can buy another 8 GB or 2x4GB sticks. Problem is MSI memory compatibility doc is lil bit confusing. https://storage-asset.msi.com/file/test_report/TR10_2205.pdf

Even mobo supports higher bus speed, CPU supports only maximum of 1333. Can i use 1600 memory stick without any issue. (PC3-10600)

Could someone help me to find some memory sticks on ebay or aliexpress for reasonable price.
