Answer:
It will support PC3-10666.
You can also look the QVL list for memory modules at your motherboard manufacturer website.

I want to buy AMD AM3 Phenom II X4 980. As i know it supports memory up to 1333 MHz PC-10600, but i want to know can i use memory PC-10666 with this processor and will it all work at 10666 or just 10600? (Didn't find information at the site).

E.g. G.SKILL RipjawsX, F3-10666CL9S-8GBXL.

So can i buy this memory or i shall buy 10600, cause it won't work on 10666?

Thanks for you replies.

P.C. I don't know english very good, so don't be pushy. =)

Should work, DDR-1333MHz, that is PC3-10666 spec, see link :

But, you should buy RAM as pair of sticks for AMD systems, e.g a set of 2x4GB or if you really need 16GB RAM, 2x8GB. This is necessary for utilizing dual channel RAM.

Yes. I know about DCM.
There is information at G.Skill site that is supports 8xx AMD shipset. I have 890FX.
But I want to know about the processor, will it support 10666 or just 10600?
So, as 10666 is a 1333 MHz spec may I use it with my Phenom II X4 980 and will it all work as 10666?
