Default CPU question

My Mobo has a front bus system of 2000 and I'm wondering how the the new AMD h3 3600 chips connect with that? They seem to have more Cashe to speed up the memory latency. Vista could address it if my FBS don't bottleneck it? Will a 3600 Hyper tread chip work well on an AM2 Mobo? It will plug in, but should I stick with the 2000mhz hyper threading chip technology? Since I'm yet to overclock something, and this being a Dell with no BIOS tweeking available, I'm wondering which chip is best for an upgrade. I'm thinking this one below is my best choice for speed, but can I use the AMD 64x4 (or x3) with the 3600HT chips on a low power dell board? I can't see if the HT connects to the cashe's and memory.
