Hint: all AMD chips lack in cache and some in FSB so comparing intel clocks to AMD doesnt do them justice.

Third the whole thing about no programs use this or that. Hell yes they do. If you actually had any demanding programs (firefox doesnt count, lol) youd know running on low memory dramatically hurts performance.

Fourth none of you even wrote what mother boards you have (im assuming u have no idea). Mother boards matter a lot they connect all the parts together. Basically for a mobo FSB is what counts cuz it must match your cpu's.
it's not the motherboard the counts, it's the chipset on the motherboard......

and second AMD cpu's don't have a FSB they use hypertransport, because the memory controller is on the CPU itself... yeah you certainly know computers.
