Default waste of money???

If i'm going to get this board and oc it:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188009

is it a waste for me to buy any memory over the stated ddr2 800?? I was going to go with ddr2 1066 for overclocking but I keep reading that that would be a waste and I should just stick with the ddr2 800 cause that is what the board can handle.... thanks for the input.

The higher the better, but you can get good results with DDR2-800 so there's really no point.
