BTW, my mobo is an ASUS p5vdc-MX
In cpu-z there are two memory tabs, one called memory and one called SPD, can you post screen dumps of both.
If so then:

(Note: DDR and DDR2 memory can not be used simultaneously)
That board does not support DDR2 800, DDR2 533 is max speed ram, that is why it is reported as 266 (266 x 2 = 532 (533)).
Please supply accurate details of the ram involved.
