OOoooh yeah, this is what we want to see more of. Kingston have just released some new DDR2-800 memory modules as a part of their HyperX performance lineup which boast extremely low latencies; 3-3-3-10! They can be purchased as either 512MB or 1GB modules with the option of dual channel kits.
Pricing doesnt look too shabby either, with the 512MB stick coming in at $69 or 2x512MB kit $138, followed by 1GB sticks and 2x1GB kits at $128 and $255 respectively.
Given their somewhat high rated voltage of 2.3 to 2.35V, overclocking headroom is anyone's guess at this stage. But you'd imagine if you dip down the timings a bit it should give you some nice headroom to play with.
Head over to Kingston's website for the full scoop on 'em folks.
