No, you are not quite getting it
. The CPU bus speed and the RAM bus speed are separate. Ie: the CPU runs at 800MHz whilst the RAM is at 667MHz. The CPU does not clock down the match the RAM.
However, yes, the RAM you pointed out in previous post is 800MHz. But this is rather pointless at the moment because the chipset only supports a RAM speed of 667Mhz. Thus, the RAM will clock down to match this (the CPU still sticks with 800MHz bus speed!). So not worth the extra money at this point.
