Well for current Intel's on the 680i it's actually overall clockspeed that wins out.... You could use the same clockspeed one with a HIGH fsb and the other with a LOW fsb (obviously using different multi's) and the performance would be more or less identical.
This is what brings me to my arguement in other posts on why the hell ppl recommend ram over PC2 6400. It just doesn't seem like anyone on this forum actually researches things fully and simply goes by what someone else recommends with no real thought in it.
