Hello guys, I desperatly searched and asked suport for days and never got any good reply... and before buying I really want to know whats the Fronze Size Bus (FSB) of it. I know the barton 3000+ is 333fsb but may be the 3000+ in athlon 64 version would be 400fsb because the motherboard are diffrent...

Also is there a big or small performance/speed diffrence between a 3000+ 333fsb and a 3200+ 400fsb in games ?
Tell me stuff about that please. I really need an answer asap. here is what i wana buy in my new computer.

If you want to get technical, the FSB of the Athlon 64 is 1600MHz. You could also say the FSB runs at the same speed as the processor. The part that actually interfaces with the memory though is clocked at 400MHz. As far as the diff btw the XP 3000+ and the XP 3200+, it's negligible.

There are a couple of possible answers to that question.

Technically, there is no FSB on the Athlon 64. This is because the function that used to be the FSB was integrated into the processor. Traditionally, the FSB was the connection to the Northbridge chip. So from the Athlon 64 perspective, there is no FSB in the traditional sense.

However, the function still exists, but just resides inside the processor. So part of the traditional FSB was to interface to the memory. Since that is now on the processor, the part of the FSB runs at processor frequency. The other part of the traditional FSB was to interface to other devices. This part is also gone and has been replaced by the Hypertransport link. HT link can be clocked at different speeds, but the common connection to the processor is an 800Mhz signal that is double pumped creating a 1600Mhz data throughput.

Hence Ardrid's answer of 1600Mhz and/or processor frequency depending on what part of the FSB function you are talking about.

Also, if you are talking about the Athlon XP 3200 (not Athlon 64) then the FSB is 400Mhz.
