Default 4 gigs of 800 or 6 gigs of 677?

Well, this is an odd post, I realize. Teh situation is this: I had 4 one gig sticks of DDR-800 in my mobo, worked fine and reported at 800 at post. Due to selling of some parts, I added 2 two gig sticks of DDR-800, and removed two of the one gig sticks. This left me with two one gig sticks, and two 2 gig sticks, for a total of six gigs, and it all boots up fine. But: at post my ram now reports at 677 instead of 800.
The question: which is faster or more useful, 6 gigs at 677 or 4 gigs at 800?
