Will a Mobo with DDR2 1200/1066 ram support allow me to use 800Mhz ram

Hi
I recently came across Biostar TA785GE.
I am planning to buy Biostar TA785GE motherboard for PhenomII X6 processor.It is written on the biostar site that the motherboard supports DDR2 ram with 1200/1066.
So does it mean that I cannot use my existing Transcend 2 gb ddr2 ram of 800MHz speed?Please guide.

If it doesn't i will switch to MSI DDR3 785gm-e51 since my ram won't be utilized in both the cases.

    Biostar site says "Support Dual Channel DDR2 533/667/800/1066(1066 by AM2+ CPU) MHz" so yes the RAM will be fine. It doers not say it supports Phenom x 6 processors though. see http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/t-series/content.php?S_ID=432

    In the cpu support tab,it says phenom x6 supported both 95w and 125 w versions.
    But in the compatibility list there is no transcend 800 Mhz DDR2 ram support.Will it be ok to put that 2 gb ram stick in this mobo?i will use it for gaming (with my old radeon 4870) and some college stuff.

    Thanks
