I wanted to get a motherboard for my amd xp 3000 400mhz fsb but the motherbord that i am stuck with supports 333mhz fsb amd xp 3000 MAX ... So my questions is how much speed difference is between 400fsb with 333fsb am i gonna lose alot of speed? And the mother bourd is not overclocable either....

Thanks in advance ~

Probably not with AMD.

I have a 1.5Ghz AMD Sempron at 333 FSB and I can play all the big games at max settings so stuff like Battle Field 2 and Joint OPerations and Half Life 2.

But then I duno cuz my motherboard isn't a normal 1 cuz i can get an upgrade chip which bypasses my CPU socket and then I can plug the AMD 64bit into the new socket.

It depends what programs you are using. Games needs as much memory bandwidth as they can get, but the AMD Athlon XP 3000+ has limiited bandwidth of about 3 gigabytes per second. You are better off of upgrading to the 939 sockets with either VIA K8T800 Pro, VIA K8T890, or nVidia nForce4 chipsets.

memo you have to remember that when you are changing processors you wil need to change the Jumpers on your motherboard if the FSB is different

That actually depends on the motherboard some have jumpers or switches and some actually do it automatically or you need to go into the BIOS to set it so it just depends.
