I built this machine with the components listed below a few months ago as a basic work workhorse. I never really paid attention to it but when i installed easy tune 6 the memory shows as PC 2 - 6400 (400 MHZ) not at 800 MHZ. any ideas on why this is ?

Go into the BIOS with a <DEL> at the first POST screen; on the "Advanced BIOS Features" page, set "AMD K8 Cool&Quiet control" to "Disabled"; your system is likely 'down-clocking' to save energy...

"Double Data Rate" Actual 400mhz, but 800mhz effective.

yes, however the clock is running at 400mhz. This is how DDR works... it sends data at the rise and fall of the clock tick.
