Default Dealing with ram, I've got a few questions.

Well to start off I was looking at getting the following...
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

However I'm noticing some better ram. How much better is DDR2 1066 PC2 8500? Isn't there DDR3 ram? (I assume it's not bang for your buck at all to go with DDR3) Should I find some better ram then instead of the above link? I was looking at a few here.
Newegg.com - GeIL 8GB(4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Quad Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
Newegg.com - GeIL 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

So how high does the ram go up? Let me know what you know! Thanks in advance. By the way the post isn't much related to my specs, but I'm building a pretty extreme computer with some top notch specs. I'm still keeping the price down with bang for your buck items, but I don't know much about ram. Let me know what you think about these better ram sticks and anything you know! Oh and I think I'm considering the 4GB ram right now and possibly 8 in the future. I'd like to stick to 2 gig sticks for the time being. (I'll be using Vista 64 bit)

EDIT: Looks like GeIL has some PC2-9280... I can't find any on newegg though.
