Depends on what motherboard you're talking about.

Personally, even if the MoBo says it's only compatible with DDR2 667, I'd put DDR2 800 max, above that it will pretty much be a waste of money because most if not all DDR2 800 can hit 900mhz to 1000mhz, so there's no need for 1066mhz RAM.

Timings are not critical for DDR2, it's bandwidth that drives DDR2.
