My System Specs

I'm probably looking to drop some coin on memory over the next couple of weeks and I'm wondering about the higher speeds.......

Is it worth going with the 1066 to allow me to unlink the memory (you can do that right????) and not bother trying to OC, or would I be better off with lower latency DDR2 800 in the hopes that it'll ramp up?
