    I recently did a system scan through crucial memory so I could get the right ram for my pc.

    My mobo asus p5ne-sli can handle ram with speeds of 800mhz which I have a gig of at the moment when I did the system scan on crucial it has reccomended 667mhz

    Can anyone explain why it didnt give me any choices for 800mhz.

    Does this mean 800mhz may be pushing the boards limits?

    Your processor and memory are probably clocked at 667mhz currently. However, the board itself can handle faster bus speeds. I would think you can get memory rated at 800mhz... I'm currently using 800mhz memory in my Asus P5B.
