So i am looking to upgrade my computer soon and i'm wondering what front side bus speed means. It says "Front side bus speeds: 1333/1066/800MHz" and i'm wondering if that's for ram or for something else because this website gives me compatible ram but the ram speed is 1,600 MHz. Please help i do not want to cause damage to my pc thank you.

Depends on CPU and motherboard.

I expect you have Intel Core 2 based system, it can support 1600 MHz memory regardless of FSB speed, little variations possible.

You won't damage your pc it will either run or not but 1600 mhz ram may not run on that pc

There is no FSB on that system. Basically there is, but it's only for CPU clock and it's normally set at 200 MHz.

So basically DDR3-1600 should work.
