CPU of the old PC

MB of the old PC


In theory if a MB don't support a fast RAM it get downgraded to match the supported speed am I wrong on that?

So after a bit of digging my conclusion was that the prob here is the FSB of CPU which is just 800 MHz is that the prob? can someone explain to me in detail plz because I would like to understand what the problem is.
