Sort of. The mainboard must also support an 800 mhz fsb. The two work hand-in-hand.
Also, am I right when I say that in order to get the full speed out of pc3200/ddr400 ram (mhz speed that is) that the system should have a 800mz cpu? Is that right?

No, ram speed is ram speed. The memory,cpu,and mainboard all work together and determine speed.
Would the ram be faster with a 800mhz fsb cpu

Right! why didn't i just say that?
Errrr...ok, I think I get that. Everything only runs as fast as the slowest part, more or less right?
Right again, and possibly your mainboard settings as well. You're getting no benefit to the faster ram you have in there. If you decide to upgrade the cpu to get full use of that ddr400, make sure you're mainboard settings are set accordingly.
my cpu is choking my ram
