Even DDR3-1600 is enough for video playback. With DDR3-1866, madVR's rendering time is slightly shorter. A10-6800K Richland in 2013 supports up to DDR3-2133 (Richland should work with the current FM2 mbs). But Trinity may not support DDR3-2133 stably (of course it runs stably at 933MHz = 1866 MT/s). The price difference between them is very small anyway.

- G.SKILL F3-1866C9D-8GAB Ares DDR3-1866 CL9 2 x 4GB Kit, $50
- G.SKILL F3-2133C11D-8GAO Ares DDR3-2133 CL11 2 x 4GB Kit, $50
- G.SKILL F3-2133C9D-8GAB Ares DDR3-2133 CL9 2 x 4GB Kit, $61
Among them F3-2133C11D-8GAO may be the best in performance / price / future-proofness.Edited by renethx - 1/1/13 at 12:08am
