does the FSB of the motherboard have to be the same as the cpu FSB?
Yes, Say you have a Motherboard with a 400fsb then you will only be able to use cpus with a bus speed of 400.
Yes, agreeing with P4_tt; the other way of saying it is that the processor you buy for your mobo must be compatible with the socket type and front side side:
my motherboard accepts Intel P4 processors up to 3.6 Ghz using socket 478/chipset I875P and an 800 Mhz front side bus.
see this link for an example:
Obtain all the specs for your motherboard before running out and buying the processor. What mobo are you considering? We can help you locate the correct processor and speed to match your mobo.
