The motherboard im getting supports DD1200, would you recommend getting DDR1066 over getting DD1200? DDR1066 memory will work with the board right?

To be able to answer your question, can you tell me what make and model motherboard you are planning to buy.

I think you will be fine. A main thing to look at is the voltage of the ram, and generally 1200mhz ram runs at about 2.1V-2.3V. I would recommend getting 1066mhz ram that runs at a similar voltage of around 2.1V. Also, to be on the safe side you should do as SLIX suggested and check the compatible types of ram with your motherboard.
