What should I set the FSB to ?

BH2

Hi guys,
built a new computer, went for a gigabyte mobo, Amd Athlon 64 X2 5200+ Skt
AM2, and 2GB of Kingston DDR2 Ram, Running Windows XP 32 bit SP2.
The system doen't seem to run alot faster than my old amd 64 3800+ with 2GB
DDR Ram.

Ok, with this new cpu and ram what should I set the FSB to ?. I have used
CPUZ to check it out and it tells me that the CPU Bus speed is 200.9 Mhz,
the Core speed is 2612.1 MHZ.

That the memory Max Bandwidth is PC2-5300 (333MHz) and that the Memory
Frequency is 326.5 Mhz FSB DRAM CPU/8.

Is this correct, or can I speed it up a bit. Your advice is appreciated
Thanks and Regards
Bob

Did you use cpuZ on the old compee that is the first thing i would
do

second what do you mean The system doen't seem to run alot
faster ?? how are you testing it?

even with your old parts to the new ones if you are not gaming or
extream ploting points (big visual math)
then the noticable diff. may not seem big but the total diff if
big

how do you plan on changing the speeds??

remember if you overclock NEED COOLING check this out
