Default I still don't completly understand FSB....

Ok so this is what I thought;
as long as you had - mobo, cpu, and ram that had the same fsb speed they
would all run that speed

seller advertised a 400mhz fsb board speed

I would like to utilize this speed, and have not yet selected any ram or a

There does seem to be a price difference between the 333mhz fsb cpu/ram and
the 400mhz equilivents. How much of a performance boost would I really get
