Can you tell me if this will be good enough to run with my next build (I'm going to be doing moderate gaming and video editing):

It should work. Be sure to set the ram voltage to 2.0 when you post, and use only one stick if you have any post problems until the voltage is set.

Crucial is not a very well liked brand any more. Their modules tend to require too much voltage and they are less reliable than they once were.

If you are shopping for 800Mhz DDR2, look for CAS 4 but voltage under 2.0V

Thanks for posting that Kingston kit, I think that looks better than the Crucial stuff.

Also you say 800mhz, is that fastest RAM I can use with the P5Q Mobo?

With LGA 775 builds higher frequency RAM does not add to performance in any way outside of synthetic benchmarks. If you were going to overclock beyond a 400Mhz FSB, then you might need 1000Mhz or 1066Mhz RAM.

Because the E7400 runs on a 266Mhz FSB, it's doubtful you would ever increase the FSB beyond 400. If this were an E8400 which runs at a 333 FSB, going past 400 would be fairly common so faster RAM might be in order.
