The FSB is the Bus that lays as a road between the processor and the chipset.

Yes there is quite a noticable difference. It is literally twice the speed.

Yeah, rediculously faster. I went from a 533 to an 800 w/ HT and saw a huge jump in performance at the same core clock speed. You'd notice. Especially going from a celery to some actual performance.
