Your bandwidth would be limited, but your overall processor speed would be much higher than stock if you used a 3/4 divider (.75, or called DDR2 400).
...because intel is quad pumped....
133*4 = DDR2 533
266 (FSB) * 2 = DDR2 533
180*4 (using a .75 divider) ~ DDR2 540 (mildly overclocked, should not cause a problem)
Therefore, this would bring you to 180*2 (360 FSB). 360 x 9 = 3240mhz
Low bandwith (slighly higher than stock), but an overall high clock speed.
If you try this, it should hold you over until you get your hands on some higher grade memory
