FSB (Front Side Bus)
If you were buying a laptop and had a choice of a FSB of 667 or 800,
and the cost difference was $25. which would you choose?

Bigger is always better...especially when the cost difference is only $25

Personally, I would be hard-pressed to turn down any speed improvement
for an increment of only $25.

I agree with you but I didn't know where the data being transferred
was coming from or going to.

My thought was that if it came from a drive, the drive may not be
processing the info fast enough to max out the capability of the bus.

Obviously I don't know the inner workings of the computer.

Re: FSB (Front Side Bus)
The FSB is the speed going from the RAM to the CPU. The drives are tied
to the Southbridge and PCI bus, which is 33 MHz.

I would go for the 800MHz FSB. It may not offer a huge speed increase,
but it will be an increase nonetheless.

Not very often that everyone that replies to a post agrees with
everyone else, but this was one of those times, so I ordered the 800
BUS
