Four slots, 2GB in each.

slot #1: PC2-6400 (400 MHz).
slot #2: PC2-6400 (400 MHz).
slot #3: PC2-6400 (400 MHz). (originally 1066MHz but motherboard will only go up to goes up to 667MHz)
slot #4: PC2-6400 (400 MHz). (originally 1066MHz but motherboard will only go up to goes up to 667MHz)


Says over 6GB of memory cached, is that good or bad?

edit; my motherboard specs here, if I have 1066MHz ram will it run at a max of 667Mhz?
dont worry about what is cached and what not, windows will do what it needs to do.

as for your mobo, yes its max memory speed is 667mhz (333mhz affective) so no matter what speed ram you put in it it will reduce it to 667, just like a laptop. it also only supports sata1-150MB/s. maybe consider a mobo upgrade that is compatible with your cpu, but you will also need all the ram to be the same sticks to have full function and compatibility instead of having 2 of one type and 2 of another. that can cause overclocking issues if you get into that, also chances are that it will reduce the speed and timings to the lowest rated stick of ram, just like the WEI is rated, that way the system will not have issues. mixing parts can cause a lot of headaches if your not careful. other than that, because you have an amd system you have a descent score, but if you had a better mobo with the same ram in all slots (like the 1066 memory you have), you would probably do better.
Yeah, I'm not much of a techy and I've been meaning to learn how about the finer points of PC's and more specifically how to build them but I haven't bothered yet, I've only done minor modifications to my PC, new GPU, more memory, 2 fans & a hard drive cooler :P

well do some research, thats what its all about. building one is not hard at all, everything is pretty user friendly, the 'harder' stuff is when you begin to learn to tweak and overclock your system.

and you will almost always save money building your own compared to buying a pre-built system, the advantage of a pre-built one is the pre-loaded software (mainly windows, the rest of it just slows the system down with all the brand vendor software) just remember to choose your products wisely and research the products your looking to purchase, so you can see the advantages/disadvantages of the product.

Yeah I'll motivate myself to do it but in the mean time one last question
I took out the old RAM PC2 6400 (2x2GB) the one running at 400MHz I believe and replaced with the PC2 8500 (2x2GB as well -- my motherboard Supports PC 4200 and PC2 5300 (667 MHz), but I assumed it would lower to the highest one wouldn't it? aka running @ 667MHz (PC2 5300) but CPU-Z says it's PC2 6400 & running @ 400MHz?

can you post a screen shot of cpu-z where it says it?

Sure.
Pretty sure I have an old screenshot of CPU-Z with the 8GB inserted somewhere.

Yep found another screenshot but was only memory tab.
I've got an old CPU-Z report

ah ok, forget the SPD tab, it is simply a example or something of what the ram can run at. the one you got to look at is the memory tab, that will show what it is at. so your ram is at 200mhz which in double data rate is 400mhz. which is still lower than it should be which is 333mhz (667)

Is there anything I could do to turn it 'up' like in the BIOS of something.

all i can suggest is to try and manually set the mem speed in the bios. you want to set it to 667 but im not sure how your bios is layed out as its an AMD system, i have only experience in Intel platforms. if there is anything along the lines of linked or synced, you need it to be set at unlinked. and go from there. leave the memory timings on auto until you can get the correct speed on the memory. if you can go to the motherboards manufacturers website, and find a link to download the manual or something, i will have a look through it and see if i can figure it out.

I think I need much help. This is the RAM I use DDR2 1066

In the BIOS I have the settings set as
Performance Enhance - Extreme
(G)MCH Frequency Latch - 266MHz
System Memory Multiplier SPD - 4.00A
Memory Frequency 1066
Timings 5 5 5 15

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: I changed a few of my BIOS settings, changed my FSB from 266 to 400, as well as my RAM frequency. I changed my timings according to the CPUZ 'Timings Table(5 5 5 18)' as well as the voltage to 1.8 down from 2.2. The new picture is attached.

Update: I have no idea what I'm doing, caused my system to because unstable ;-P(Blue screens after a few mins with windows up.)
