or go with some DDR2 1066? (Kingston Hyper X) I'm not sure if I would even reach 1066 speeds with the CPU I'm using. General consensus is you need the 45nm CPU's to reach full speed.

The current cards on the market are not able to fully saturate the PCI-Express x16 bus, let alone the 2.0's higher capabilities. You won't notice any problems here.
The G.SKILL RAM will work fine in that motherboard, all it's simply saying is that Gigabyte haven't tested it themselves. There are so many configurations possible (so many RAM manufacturers, makes, models, etc...) that they test a few that do work well and publish it.
As long as the specifications agree (the motherboard is able to support it), then you won't have an issue with compatibility.

I would go for the DDR2 800MHz RAM. The performance gain you will receive with the 1066MHz RAM would not be worth the extra $$$ outlay, in my opinion.
You would have to overclock the CPU a fair way before you will be overclocking the RAM as well...

Is the modular cabling something I would really want here or no?
I just finished building a new system using a Thermaltake modular power supply. If you haven't already ordered your system, I strongly recommend you go with the modular cabling. My new system is so much neater without the mess of unused cables which clutter up the case in my old one.
