On my motherboard there is a jumper switch to switch between 200MHz FSB or 400. i was wondering which one to have it on? it is currently on 200. Would my computer be faster if i were to switch it to 400?

It would technically be faster but chances are that it wouldn't boot. Faster, but unusable. Jumper based clock settings aren't that rare, but they aren't very flexible.

what cpu? what motherboard? it really depends, also it might be fsb or it might be fsb after netburst had been applied, be sure to check
