"Max bandwidth PC2-6400 (400 MHz)"

Tells you its DDR 800 (PC2-6400) 400 Mhz

Essentially you can increase your FSB up to 400Mhz without worrying about the ram assuming a 1:1 ratio

Having voices in your head is normal. Listening to them, common. Arguing, acceptable. However, when you lose the argument, you're in trouble.

I just barely went into BIOS and discovered that I cannot edit any of my CPU or RAM settings. I'm assuming this is because its a Dell BIOS and they don't want me messing with anything. Anyway to get around it?

Try looking into "modded" BIOSs for dells and programs like Nvidia System Tools if you have a compatible chipset.

There's also the slightly more extreme option of get a new case, power supply and motherboard and bring all the old parts to the new gear.
