Like the diagram Mutant Corn. Intel is very similar minus the on-die GPU in the Northbridge....
You might have had problems in the past with Intel systems that used the 'FSB' system and had the memory controller on the motherboard...
However these days both AMD and Intel CPU's have the memory controller on die and all the critical components, HT(AMD), QPI(Intel), and chipsets use a common clock(beat) to run. All the clock provides is a tic-tock signal and the components use multipliers to get 'their' optimum running speed from this 'metronome-like' signal. For example. The B
on an Intel i7 system is 133Mhz which is slow for a CPU so the CPU will multiply this by 20 to get 'it's' running speed of 2660Mhz and likewise the same BCLK
will be multiplied by 12 to get 1600Mhz RAM(or X10 for 1333MHz RAM). And the same for the same for the QPI and chipset. AMD's operate on a very similar basis just replace the QPI with the HT. Just remember we don't deal with bus speeds anymore.
The amount of data that flows via Northbridge<>CPU<>RAM is dependant on the speeds of the components but it isn't something you need to be concerned about unless you overclock and usually bottle-necks that may happen when overclocking these components usually causes stability issues/BSOD's anyways.
Anyways you won't have a problem with FSB's at all and the stuff you've chosen is fine but for a gaming machine choose the GPU carefully.
