Individually, they are 400MHz. However as it's DDR2 (dual-channel), they add together to become 800MHz. Not the most technical way to put it but I hope you understand.

DDR = Double Data Rate

You memory is correct.

DDR SDRAM - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yeah, DDR2 means double data rate like Hefe said. So you double 400MHz which equals 800MHz.
