I have 8 gb of ddr3 1333 mhz RAM in dual channel, however speccy shows in this image that it only runs at 668.7 mhz.

Why is that? because I have 32 bit OS? Or some other reason? I'm going to upgrade to 64 bit soon, just need about a month or so.

So what's the deal with my RAM? Is it not supposed to be at 1333 mhz?

Solution
the way ram goes, it by default is shown running 1/2 speed, and transfers twice as fast as the frequency(i think double atleast)... so it is running 1333 MHz and is normal

Wow our PC's are almost identical I have a 500 watt psu, a 6770, 8gb ddr3 as well :D

Thanks for the information btw, there's no way I could have known that. Thank you :)

(btw I'm going to Crossfire 6770's eventually.!)
