What does this mean? Only DDR2-800 JEDEC 1.8v?

What does this mean?

Notice: Only DDR2-800 memory supporting JEDEC approved 1.8V operation with timings of 5-5-5 or 6-6-6 is supported on Intel Desktop Boards based on Intel 965 Express Chipsets.

Does that mean I cant get away with any 667 Memory ? Newegg is very limited in the 1.8v memory they have in DDR2-800. Any advice to understand this?

Does that mean I can use memory only that say's 1.8?

What about anything different I see really good name brands but they do not have the same V raiting?

The motherboard going to use is a
GIGABYTE GA-965G-DS3 Socket T (LGA 775) Intel G965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail -

Intel-brand boards tend to be more standards-compliant and overclocking-unfriendly. On the face of it, the warning means that you cannot run memory at DDR2-800 CL4 or CL3, or at different voltages than 1.8V. I would think DDR2-667 of any latency should be fine, but check with the vendor or manufacturer to be sure. Also check with the vendor or manufacturer about memory voltages other than the standard 1.8V.
What are your goals? If they include overclocking, don't get this board.
