Because there are two cores on...for instance, my AMD Athlon X2, does that mean that since there are two cores, the normal FSB for one core which would be 2000mhz, would be x2 so i can put in 4 sticks of pc 6400 at 800mhz? or does the FSB not change when you add another core? Also is there somewhere i can learn more about how the cores work together? Im pretty new to the whole concept. Thanks!

You can only put in RAM that your motherboard supports, and only as much as it supports.

This should get you started in Front Side Bus architecture, and you can like off to other Wiki entries from there.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Front_side_bus

Also, poking around on www.tomshardware.com will help you pick up a ton of good information, although most it is written assuming you know what all of that means. You should be able to infer lots of new info from their articles and reviews, though.

The FSB or HyperTransport bus remains at the same speed and width with one core or with two cores at 2000Mhz. And the amount and speed of memory also remains the same regardless if the processor is a single core or dual core - the max of which is determined by both the processor, as a whole, and the motherboard.
