Hi Experts,

I was hoping you could help me with a quick sanity check on compatibility/potential performance issue for the following three components:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231166
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131299
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115042

So:
1. Are they completely compatible? Any potential issue?
2. What is lost by have 1066 memory as opposed to the maximum 1200 that the board supports? Is there a porportional access time, or is it potentially worse? I didn't see much in the way of 1200, which is why I ended up with 1066. Any thoughts?
3. What are the defining cpu characteristics that ensure a processor is fully compatible with a motherboard? What should you look for in general? (And more specifically, any issues here?)
4. Any upgrade/downgrade suggestions?

Thanks!
