I've overclocked my OCZ Gold Edition sticks to 1099mhz from 800mhz and really don't notice any difference in speed, it's very vague, just a little bit snappier for me on desktop, but I have not noticed any performance increases in games or audio applications. But your only going to be paying £5-£10 more for the 1066mhz so it's worth it , but up to you.

I would peronslly go for the OCZ Titanium XTC if i had a choice out of those 3 on 800mhz, but Dominator's are very good and rated highly, either of them you can't go wrong. If you do go for 1066mhz I would pick up the Corsair XMS2's for sure.
