the FSB is actually the memory speed. even if your mobo does support 133 FSB, your memory might not and well it just gets quite confusing and i dont know much about all that stuff but every time ive upgraded my comp, i've upgraded to a completely different CPU so i needed new a Mobo.

a 133 Pentium
to a 300 P2
to a 1.2 GHz Athlon

but i could tell the diferance substantially between my comp and my brother's who has a 900 Athlon it starts up faster and runs smoother although he has a better graphics card and running unreal tourney has sharper images mine still runs smoother

thats not always 100% true
at these higher frequencies of today, memory speed was becoming a bottle neck. it just couldnt get enough information to the prossecor to show that much improvement when upgrading

DDR ram as you stated is 266 while the memory in most current systems is either 100 or 133
