What kind of memory can you use with a X38 X48 or X58 mobo?

Excuse my appalling ignorance, not much of a builder.
I'm looking at new motherboards and want to get one with a x*8 northbridge so I can use either SLI or Crossfire. I'm just thinking for the future - if I have enough money and for whatever reason want to replace one ATI with two nVidea, or vice versa, I'd like the option.
The thing is they all seem to imply you have to get DDR2 1200 RAM. Do I HAVE to get DDR2 1200 or can I just use any DDR2 RAM?
