Exclamation DDR2-1066 4gb vs DDR2-800 8gb

Which would be a better route to run? I do overclock and am looking for the best possible run i can get..

Right now I have the Dominator Series @ 1066 o/c to 1170. (4-1gb)

If I went to 8gb of ram running say G Skill ddr2-800 (2-2gb) would i see any more of a performance increase?? And id probably get a lower o/c with this speed of memory, right?

I'm a PC
ASRock P45TS
INTEL Celeron DC E3300 @ 3.84Ghz @ 1.328 VID
6GB Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR2-960
Nvidia 9400GT card w/Dual 22" Monitors

Seagate 750GB (Storage)

WD 1TB External (I consume free space)
