The 200 FSB processors refer to the 'internal' bus speed of the CPU which is double the FSB ( 2 x 100 ) and like wise the 266 FSB processors are double pumped internally respective to the FSB ( 2 x 133 ). Data travels across the system faster as the FSB speed increases and as such the 266 cpu which requires the higher bus speed will generally be a slightly faster system overall

what's interesting is that, on pricewatch, at least, the 200mhz versions are actually more expensive than the 266mhz ones. i think that the reason is that the 200's are less popular, so therefore they don't make as many. :beer:

hugovsky -
what the heck is the matter with you?!? :mad: a "decent" question? just because the guy is new is no reason to insult him. that post was completely against any and all reasons this forum exists. he asked a simple question, and we tried to answer it. THAT'S WHAT WE DO HERE, IN CASE YOU HADN'T NOTICED!!! if you can't be civil about it, please just don't post anything . . .

Fellas, Lets keep this discussion civilized.

Hugovsky, That is exactly the type of question this site is designed for, to help others with thier questions and to share ideas.

To ALL, I have learned much in my time here and I try my best to share my knowledge with others, and to learn from others.

With that said please refrain from flaming one another as that isnt permitted.

Sam

I'm really sorry. That's an honest sorry. I just thought that zdoof1 was one of those guys that just come here to make dumb questions and try to make us look stupid for doing something diferent like o/c. I'm sorry if i was rude. I didn't meant to. To anyone who cares, here id my public declaration of stupidity. I was a newbie too and all of you in O/C forum were very nice guys and tryed to help me whenever you could. Once again i'm sorry if i offended you all.
