bus speed and memory????

  simone113 13:02 15 Jun 2008

It may be thick of me but I can not get my head around bus speeds etc with the new intel quad cpu
I have a q9300 it states 1333mhz but i have been given 800mhz memory will it work? 800 does not divide into 1333?
What am I missing if it does..

Quick spec,,, Gigabyte GA-P35-S3G mainboard
Intel Q9300 cpu
2x 2GB corsair 800Mhz DDR2 Matchd pair

Can support any of following type DDR2 1066/800/667 MHz memory modules

So DDR2 / 800 MHz will work

Thank you very much for your quick response,

but does this mean the cpu runs slower?

cpu and memory are 2 different things.
