Is it wise to sell my TeamXtreme 1200MHZ for 1066 MHZ in case with the AM2+ socket?

Yes if you use a 64bit OS. All though not all games will take that much ram. How ever you use Vista too and for me noticed 1GB to 1.5GB used from from boot and with your average game taking 1GB to 2GB makes 4GB more worth while..

When i used to play Stalker it used around 5GB at times..

4GB for a system fast enough for games of today is good and as for 800Mhz to 1200Mhz in gaming i've never noticed a difference only in benchmarks..

Go for it. See if you can find some of the new Gskill black pi's. They do 800mhz @ 4-4-4-12 with only 1.8v!

Which would be "better", 800Mhz /4-4-4-12, or 1066MHz/5-5-5-15?
Depends of the processor speed i mean when the link runs 1:1 (refering to CPU/RAM) 800 mhz is faster. When u really want to have a good and high benchmark result 1066 will be better atleast that is what i experienced.

Higher memory clocks than 800 are just for overclockers and dont really have any speed benefit except the high fsb you might get with the high speed :)
