Default Asus Help! ( Question )

First off I'm new to this forums so hello everyone!

Okay, i usually don't build my own PC but i want to get into more performance / graphic games so i started looking at a few things i could afford.

I found a motherboard / CPU combo for 249.99 that came with a Asus A8N-SLI motherboard, and a ATI 1.8mhz 2000mhz fsb. For what i could afford ( Under 300 ) this was the best i could find.

Now what i need your help on, is the front side bus on the motherboard, i have looked all over the place and found mixed answers, i seen 1000mhz, 1600mhz and 2000mhz.

i see it says 2000mt but i'm not sure what that is, but what would that be equivalent to fsb MHZ wise? sorry if this is a little "retarded" sounding.

Please clear this up, and is this a good motherboard?

Thanks!

On AMD processors "HT / HyperTransport" does the same thing as "FSB / Front Side Bus" does on an intel processor.

The hypertransport speed for that board is 1000 X 2.

And no, Asus no longer manafactures quality motherboards for AMD processor based solutions.
