Do I need to ignore the SPD? does the SPD make a difference in anything?
It says in everest I can support DDR3 1066 should I try that ram instead?

I'd just ignore the SPD tab. Your motherboard wouldn't be able to support DDR3 - the two aren't compatible, unless you have one of those boards which have two DDR2 and two DDR3 RAM slots. SPD is designed to tell the BIOS the module's size, data width, speed, and voltage. The BIOS uses this information to configure the memory properly for maximum reliability and performance.
