The ratio represents how fast/efficiently your CPU and RAM "talk" to each other.

So if your CPU has FSB of 800 Mhz according to CPU-Z, your RAM should have that much. In your case, that should be no problem at all because you got the hardware support.

Just check CPU-Z's RAM timing section and it'll tell you if it's 1:1.

EDIT:
Quote:
Clock timings for FPM DRAM are typically 6-3-3-3 (meaning 3 clock cycles for access setup, and 3 clock cycles for the first and each of three successive accesses based on the initial setup).

not on AMD,

DDR2 800 is optimal for AMD chips becuse it runs at a 2:1 ratio.

ah, yes. I keep forgetting the application of RAM is diff. for AMD. Silly me.

its ok, also for AMD the memory controler design does not require the ram be a 1:1 ratio for preformace boost at all, thats why DDR2 533 does offer a slight edge of DDR400 when the timings are tight enough.
