Going with the highest speed DDR3 you can find is an expensive proposal.  Kingston's HyperX DDR3-1625 2GB Memory Kit isn't cheap by any means, but it does provide you with 1625MHz RAM and a low latency for a DDR3 module.  Think Computers did find some issues when using this memory at full speed on X38 and P35 m

Double the pleasure ...

Crucial, and other memory manufacturers, are doing a great job of keeping DDR2 alive as DDR3 matures.  Speed increases are continuing, and the prices just keep getting better, which has prompted 4GB kits like the Crucial Ballistix Tracer

DDR2-800 4Gb kit.  CPU3D tried the kit and it's blinking LEDs out and found that not only is this kit a cheap date, it enjoys going all the way.

R&B Mods looks at G.SKILL's DDR2 PC2 8500, which have been constructed a with a little more attention to detail that some other modules we've seen.  It's stock speed of 1066 @ 5-5-5-15 really isn't all that impressive but 4-5-5-13 @ 285 FSB isn't too bad, and they manged to hit 300Mhz with loose timings.  Maybe you can pick up a kit and do even better

If you were curious what Fred Weber is up to these days, as the former CTO of AMD, look no further than to a company called MetaRam that is promising 4x the current capacity of memory modules with little to no price hike or performance penalty.  According to this engadget post, MetaRam "uses a specialized "MetaSDRAM" chipset that effectively bonds and
addresses four cheap 1Gb DRAM chips as one, tricking any machine's
memory controller into using it as a 4x capacity DIMM."
