Default Conroe RAM question

Ok well I've been planning on building a comp in June/July with an Opteron 165. But seeing as the Conroe will be coming out around then I would be dumb not to get it. I'm planning on OCing the conroe so does anyone know of some good ddr2 RAM that I should use? I want 2 gb and my budget is around $200. Thanks.

Try some DDR2 800.

if you can spare the extra $30 or so it's worth it, i've seen tests and DDR3 800 is fast, if i remember correctly.

OCZ even makes a DDR2 1100!!
