Default RAM question

Hello all,

I'm currently in the process of looking to upgrade my system. It's been a while since I've paid attention to hardware, so I have a quick question regarding ram.
I'm looking at getting the ASUSP6X58D-E. It says that it can support ram that is DDR3-1333, or 2000 (O.C.). My question is this: does that mean i have to buy ram that is 1333MHz, and then I can OC it to 2000? Or does it mean I can just buy ram that is 2000MHz and it will run fine?

It means you can buy RAM that can run up to 2000Mhz and it will run fine.
