DDR2 Question

Im about to upgrade my new system here perty soon, being that its been a few years now and i havnted kept much upto date with all the new computer hardware thats been released, and this new system i want is going to require ddr2 memory and i notice that the mobo i want has a standard of DDR2 800, knowning that ddr2 533 is much cheaper how much of a bottleneck would it cause on my system if i used ddr533 ram or even 667, instead of not using its best supported of ddr2 800 memory?

this computer im making will be for gaming and i am purchasing 2x 512mb of memory.

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-M55SLI-S4 nForce4
GFX Card: eVGA e-GeForce 7900 GS PCI Express 256MB GDDR3
Cpu: AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3500+ Socket AM2

Thanks for your help.

  1. Dont quote me on this but I think that amd processors work best with 800mhz.
  2. You don't need to spend very much more for decent CL4 DDR2-800:
