    AM2+ chips support DDR2 -1066/800/667/533. (AM3 chips support DDR3 - didn't see speeds up probably lower stuff (never tried DDR3 on AM2+ personally, but you can't use DDR2 and DDR3 at the same tme))

    For DDR2 I think I'd stick with running it at 800. According to many reviews on Newegg, getting ram to run at 1066 was frustrating and difficult.

    Your problem is that DDR2 is expensive now, $60-80 for a 4gb set new.

    Edit: if you're in the US, give @Maban a message, awesome guy. He has a 4gb kit for sale
