Difference in FSB? 800 vs 533

Just wondering what difference you would be able to notice with 800mhz fsb vs 533mhz fsb?

I am thinking about going up to Circuit city or Bestbuy and running a benchmark on them both.

To utilize either, you'll need to buy applicable ram, for a FSB of 533MHz use PC2700/3200, and for a FSB of 800MHz use PC3200.

Going with 800mhz, you'll be able to get far faster cpus that wont be bottlenecked with a 533mhz setup.

man, i LOVE my new machine, i skipped the 533 mhz FSB, went from 400fsb p4, straight to 800, and it runs so much faster, it isn't even comparable.

i do have good quality components now, which i didnt have before.

No I know that. Both are 2.8ghz but one has an 800fsb and the other is a 533fsb. Just didnt know the differece in speed/performance.

the "slower" 800fsb P4s LOVE to be overclocked apparently,

a buddy of mine is currently running his 2.4 at over 250mhz x 4.

that thing is as fast as my 3.0 and i have tighter ram timings.
