Iif u have 400MHz, and u get 800MHz, it will be knocked down to 400MHz anyway.

That is why I asked for the mobo, as it may be cheaper to get more RAM.

This may help you with what you're after. It deals mostly with RAM timings, but explains Mhz and it's importance in the first page of the tutorial.

6400 is 800mhz, I assume CPU-z is simpy taking the value from a single lane (there are 2 for DDR2/DDR3, so it would be 2 lanes = 400mhz (per lane) times 2 (amount of lanes) = 800)
