Default CPU and RAM question......

I am looking to upgrade my cpu from a P4 with 533 mhz FSB to a P4 with 800 mhz FSB. I already have a good stick of 533 mhz
DDR2 Ram. Right now, my RAM FSB and CPU FSB are evenly matched at 533mhz. If I do upgrade to a 800mhz FSB CPU, would my RAM FSB increase as well, or would it stay at 533mhz under default? I ask this, because I dont want to run my RAM at a higher FSB than it's intended 533mhz. When I increase the FSB of it, I have to run it a lower settings, which I dont want.
