    a friend says that if the motheboard bus speed isnt as high as the processor needs then the processor will perform at a low speed ... is this true?

    Yes. For example, you can run an Athlon XP 2500+ on a board that has a maximum FSB speed of 266MHz even if the chip is designed to run at 333MHz FSB.

    ya to add to what virtualbody1234 said, the cpu would then run at the speed of a athlon xp 1700+ becuase of the lower FSB.

    source...Take the original multiplier and then just look at it over in the 266mhz FSB section instead of the 333 ones.

    Thanks for the reply people, knew so myself .. just had a friend round who didnt believe that I have a decent processor even though its running at a slowler speed due to my motherboard. Asking in the way I did just made things more simple .. thanks again.
