Why do you need a score of 800?  With the score you have now you probably qualify for the same interest rates as someone with a score of 800.  Don't drive yourself crazy chasing a number, very few people get to 800's.  You would have to have at least one open account of EVERY TYPE OF CREDIT THAT IS AVAILABLE, like a car loan, a mortgage, a personal loan, revolving credit, etc.  Doesn't always make much financial sense, if you see what I mean.
