I'm planning on upgrading my computer but I wanted to now that if I purchase a p4 800 fsb but use dual channel 533 ram will it run at 800Mhz. I just want to know because in the future I will upgrade to a duo-core that runs at 1066FSB, and I know the dual-channel 533 will run at 1066 Mhz. Otherwise I'm just going to get ddr2-800.

the 533 ddr2 is sufficient for both your 800fsb(4x200) cpu and 1033fsb(4x266) cpu. DDR2 533 is actually 266 so you can see that its fast enough for both applications.
