D975XBX motherboard vs PC2-6400 memory specs

by pacifist / August 19, 2006 8:47 AM PDT

I am looking at a computer and wonder if they have the configuration wrong.
My question is with the memory being used (DDR 800mhz) in this Intel Motherboard D975XBXLKR see here:
The Intel MB specs say that the max memory that can be used is DDR 566/667mhz so would not the extra performance of the pc2-6400 DDR800 memory be wasted?
I am looking at purchasing this unit (below) and this I think is a conflict, but my knowledge is limited and I am probably way off base. This computer is the one in question:
Please any guidance would be appreciated.
