In a store or online? If at a store, take it back and swap it out. Even if bought online, you'd probably be able to do it, but you'd obviously have to wait longer.
I really dont think it matters, cuz according to memory speed test(actions per seconds) Im getting the same score now as before. So I dont think that it is slowing me down. The 1066mhz only ran at 800mhz because of my CPU so maybe this isnt so bad.
You're board may not automatically clock the ram to the 1066MHz speed, so you'd have to do that in bios. My board does the same thing.

Doesnt matter what board Im using, Ive been trying to set the settings to 1:2:66 aka 1066mhz and then I get a black screen, both with 770 board and my new 785, so Im told that it is the CPU. But I ran a memtest and I got results for mem speed.

Is that ok speed?

Because your board may not automatically clock the ram to the 1066MHz speed, you may have to sett ALL settings manually including voltage and timings. Your processor will work with 1066MHz ram. If you're not able to get it to work, then I'd think that it would be a limitation of that chipset first, rather than a problem with the cpu. You have an AM3 processor in an AM2+ board. And, to the best of my knowledge the 785 chipset is not an enthusiast designed chipset. You may have some options for overclocking and such, but probably not as robust as would be found in a 790X/GX/FX chipset.

ok, but I really dont care if I cant get 1066mhz Im running CODMW 2 in 1920x1080 with everything fully tuned and it looks perfect, so I dont need more speed from the memory.
But as I asked earlier, is that speed good? Or you know, good enough? The x mb/s

Already told you what would happen if you put them together,

Will this work together?

I've read from many people here and on other sites that you probably won't notice a major speed increase from 800MHz to 1066MHz. My current config is similar to yours in that I have my 1066MHz ram running at 800MHz. I'm content. So if you're content with your performance, the all is good!

Indeed you did. I was just wondering if that speed was good enough.

Less than 5% and in most cases not even that much. Only way you would really see the difference is if you sit and run benchmarks all day.
