Yeah I was going to add that almost all RAM, at least to my knowledge, is natively 1333MHz. The 1600MHz sets are just tested and rated to run at 1600MHz, and therefore using it at that speed is overclocking. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

You are right, it doesn't. I like your suggestion about an additional card. I'm having a hard time finding a mobo that has usb 3.0 and supports ddr3 1600 :/

AMD CPU may or may not run at that ram speed they list here as Supports up to DDR3-18662 but the 2 then reads.
"1866 supported with 1 DPC (DIMM per Channel) in single memory slot motherboard designs"

The modo I listed listed above does have USB 3 but not SATA 3 and this one has both if you can get it but some of the SATA ports may be blocked if the GPU card is too long.

Go with Intel, and you have quite a few choices to pick from with everything you want.

To keep it budgetary, this is a good one:
