This is what will happen:

You pop in the RAM, with everything at stock. RAM will run at DDR2 800 speeds at the most.

You then start overclocking, fixing your RAM at that 1:2 divider (your HTT is 200MHz, RAM runs at DD2 800, which is an external frequency of 400MHz... that's a 1:2 ratio). You increase your HTT to 250MHz, and at that point, your RAM will run at DDR2 1000 speeds.

However, running a RAM favorable divider gives marginal performance increases at best (Esp. on AMD systems). Running RAM 1:1 is in most cases more than enough. When you do that, your RAM will run 1:1 at DDR2 400 at stock, and at DDR2 500 speeds when your HTT is 250MHz. Thus, at 1:1, even inexpensive DDR2 667 RAM is sufficient, allowing your HTT to go up to 333MHz before RAM hits stock!

However, I would still recommend DDR2 800, since generally better quality components are used (like Micron D9 chips... only few DDR2 667 kits use them).

I would get this:

Again, that RAM overclocks easily to over DDR2 1000 speeds anyways.
