I was wondering how big of a speed difference their is between 533FSB and 800FSB. Im currently running a 3.06 Ghz 533 FSB processor, and I was thinking about upgradeing to a 3.2 or 3.4 800 FSB processor. Would the speed change be significant or barely noticeable ? Thanks.

I don't think that the speed improvement will be practically noticable

A bit faster, but keep your money for a future system uprade. And, for now, try overclocking your CPU, get the max of your rig if you really need more power.

But, why do you need more power, your CPU is still more than enough in most situation!

Damin it! I'm not credible anymore... Poor t-bred he was doing so well 2 year's ago! I O/C it from a tiny 1.533GHz to 2.0GHz and it never let me down...
