I am researching my 1st FM style build and have finally made my decision on the components, except for the memory. I was told the A10-6600 was the only APU that could run 2133 or higher memory, and am curious if that is true? What I actually would like to do is build this for future information as I plan to set up my permanent APU system after kaveri arrives. But, I'm a person that can't afford to buy components after release, usually a generation behind-- or close to that.So, learning with a FM2 rig consisting of:

Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 (or BIOSTAR Hi-Fi A85W depending on sales)
Richland A10-6800K (unless another is high ram compatible) with the 760K Richland 3.8GHz Socket FM2 100W in reserve (a cpu only 70 buck option)
Gigabyte HD 7750 (DDR3 / DDR5 depending on which is more memory compatible)
SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze PWR SUPPLY

Eventually I will be running dual burners as well as multiple fans, h2o cooling, and accessories which is why I choose to go with a higher than necessary power supply. I am trying to learn from this build so that next year, prob. mid-year, I can pass this down to the living room for the HTPC there and build the FM2+ unit for our bedroom system. I had planned to just use a 750K Athlon II, wait for the Gigabyte Sniper FM2+ mobo to arrive (supposedly a cpl months before Kaveri) and just swap out the APU then to Kaveri's best. The issue is, along with the cost, is being unsure of the rumors of how long it'll be until the FM2+ boards are released. I also wouldn't have much time to learn and play around with the APU's.

So, any advice on memory combinations with whichever APU y'all have used would be highly appreciated to help me choose the correct components the first time out. I would like to have the APU be compatible with the 7000 series (memory as well) and with Motherboard memory speeds over 2000.



Thank y'all for any advice or help you may have.
