Default RAM and overclocking

I'm building a new computer a i5 or Amd 965 and I was told by one of the store geeks that DDR3 1333 is as high as you can go without overclocking. So buying 1600 or 2000 would be a waste of money. Does anyone know anything about this?

You can use memory faster than 1333 MHz, it just won't be supported on some motherboards.

I've found that the "store geeks" have no idea what they are talking about 9/10 times.
