    One issue of confusion is the labeling of front side bus speeds. Typically a FSB today is dual or quad channel, meaning a FSB speed advertised as being "333 MHz" may actually be 166 MHz dual channel, effectively meaning 333 MHz of speed. Nowadays, PC (X86) CPUs work with front side bus speeds ranging from 133 MHz dual channel (266 MHz effective) to 200 MHz quad channel (800 MHz effective).

    kool thats exactly what i wanted to know.



    looking at my specs, would you say that an asus a7n8x deluxe would improve overall performance.... fsb 400... i duno if its dual channel..?

    How Important Is Fsb?
    okay, you know how the clock speed describes how fast the processor does its work internally? the front side bus speed describes how fast it communicates with the motherboard.

    the FSB speed is important, just like the processor speed, RAM speed, hard drive speed, etc are important. because they're all working together as a system, so when the speed of one part lags behind the others, it slows the whole thing down. of course, there is no "perfect" balance of these parts, there's always going to be some component which is not quite keeping up with the others-- so the best you can ever do is try to put together a set of components that sort of go well together, instead of a really fast component here and a really slow component there.
