Default Lockup problems running at 800fsb/667ddr2

Hi, hope this is the right forum, apologies if not.
I recently built a new PC :
MSI P4N Diamond MB
PNY Gforce 6800 GT / 256 mgs ram
200 gig SATA HD
Dual Core 3.0 INTEL (830) 775 chipset processor
Antec 480 power supply

with this I purchased (2) of the VS1GBKIT667D2 ram kits.

The problem I'm having is this is supposed to be a 800FSB MB that's capable of running 667 ram, yet with those settings the PC will not boot. I had to turn it down to 667FSB with 400 speed ram to even be able to get XP installed without it hard locking. Is this right? I ran a Windows Memtest and everything checked fine. Read in another thread where you posted (I think) that 667 ram should actually read as 333.3 or something.
I still get random Hard Locks while playing World of Warcraft but I think the last patch they did hosed it for a lot of people.
Should I set the ram speed down to 333? Should I still have the FSB at 800? Very new to the whole 'build your own' pc stuff so any help would be appreciated.

The memory frequency should be set to 333 Mhz. 333 Mhz clock speed x 2 = 667 Mhx DDDR.
