Processor and RAM rating VS FBS
Posted on 2007-11-16
I am wanting to upgrade a friends computer with spare parts I have but have a couple questions.
Would I get a better performance out of a E6600 (2.4 GHZ with 1066 FBS) than a dual core (1.8GHz with a 800 FBS) if the mother board only supports a FBS of 800. Basically what happens if you run a processor at a lower FBS than it is rated for. Same question for memory, how does it affect performance if I run ddr2 800 memory when the motherboard only supports ddr2 667. By doing this I would be able to upgrade the RAM from 1GB to 2 GB.
