    so.

    the architecture on my current machine is 1067MHz.

    i found a 1333MHz RAM.


    will it cause any complication?

    The RAM will downclock itself to 1067Mhz.

    Why not get the correct speed in the first place?

    It will downclock itself, but it still won't work right. You may have some stability issues here and there, so I would recommend not to get it.

    I've never had a problem using higher-speed-rated RAM in a slot designed for slower RAM. The RAM will underclock itself. I've never noticed any instabilities, unlike when trying to use and overclock slower RAM to run at faster speeds. If you can't find any 1066, I really don't see any harm in using 1333.
