the way you have it set up right now with your ram in slots 1 and 2 (yellow and black slot), the ram will only work in single channel, not dual.

DDR2 SDRAM - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ddr = double data rate

what you see in cpuz is the freq. and to get the actual mhz speed you multiply the freq. x 2.

if you round up, your ram is running @ 1069mhz.
