Default Low DDR3 prices, need advice

Ok folks, DDR3 prices are very low right now, the lowest I have seen since I started paying attention to computer hardware prices. I see these sales on NCIX for 8GB of hyper X for 50 bucks and it makes me want to buy some. I will be upgrading down the road to either a Z68 board or AM3+ depending on how things go. I think I read that AM3+ supports 1600mhz RAM, but I am unsure what LGA1155 supports, and also, is Ivy Bridge going to be on 1155 as well, and what speed will it support.

To summerize, I want to buy RAM now that I will probably use in a build sometime before Christmas, what speed should I get to take advantage of whatever is the latest tech down the road?
