Just get DDR2 800. I doubt you'll be running an FSB higher than 400, and if you are, just overclock your RAM, as worshipme said.
AMD platforms don't have an FSB, they're not limited in bandwidth by it. The only thing limiting the RAM bandwidth is the NB clock (memory controller inside the CPU). You can only increase it so far before you need more volts, which means more heat.

AMD Phenom: Performance scaling with different RAM-Settings - That's a great article.

yeah, its better to have a build of both processors. I find that the easiest way to learn because it affects you.
