FSB doesn't correlate to RAM speed. 800MHz or even 667MHz DDRII will function without a problem.

If you're curious as to what the FSB does, check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Front_side_bus

so the 800mhz will work, but if i want more memory bandwidth i should get the pc8500 (is it pc8600 im so bad with shit) ??

i used to know all this, hell i had a dual 300a celeron board (bp7 i think it was) @~1ghz pre 2000. i also was a contributer and founding member of insanehardware.com.au

sigh i just forget things when i dont use them enough ><
