The update kies is offering could be Froyo 2.2.1, if it is, it's very good, fast, smooth and has no lag.
You will find more info on Darky's Rom over at XDA Developers Forum.
I have been using Darky's Rom V9.2 Extreme Edition for a couple of weeks now and it's just great, very fast and smooth.
Darky produces updates on a regular basis, some are just fixes and some are major.
