Yes, your motherboard can support ddr2-800 and probably even ddr2-1066... it's just that the standard is 667 (which really doesn't mean anything)

As for speed, ddr2-800 is probably the minimum you want in your system these days.... ddr2-1000 or ddr2-1066 would be even better

Here's the kit I would suggest:
4GB of DDR2-1000 (5-5-5-15) for $45shipped no MIR

It should work. And yes, DDR2800 will be faster than DDR2667.

Indeed lower (or tight) timings are better... but Intel based systems tend to favor MHz over tightened timings...

ddr2-1000/1066 @ 5-5-5-15 beats out ddr-800 @ 4-4-4-12 in almost all benchmarks that I've seen
