Intel B75 + Pentium G2030 + RAM--> 1333 0r 1600?


Right off the assembly line
I am planning to purchase the following combo but i am not sure which RAM will work it.

Mobo - Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H
CPU - Intel 3 GHz LGA 1155 G2030

RAM - here i have 2 options.
1. Transcend 4GB DDR3 (JM1333KLH-4G)
2. Transcend 4GB DDR3 (JM1600KLN-4G)

I don't know whether 1600 RAM will work with above combo. Intel website says that RAM supported is 1333 on G2030 but on Gigabyte website it says that this mobo supports 1600 RAM provided the CPU is ivy bridge.

So i am not sure about the RAM compatibility. If someone is using the above combo then let mo know your experience.
Get 1600 MHz ram. Even if it doesn't work it will downclock to 1333 MHz by the BIOS automatically. Moreover, the price difference isn;t much. Get Corsair Value select or Kingston Fury.

I didn't knew about the cost. Then i go with the B85 chipset motherboard.
But G3220 is not available online on Flipkart and Snapdeal.
I have to get it from shops.

I just want to have a pc which will do browsing and some casual gaming.

I have a generic 500 watts PSU which came with the cabinet but i can upgrade to one.
