Sorry, missed yor second question...

I doubt the extra RAM bandwidth would be noticed.

compiling is HEAVILY dependant on HDD bandwidth and cache performance.
RAM bandwidth is tertiary.

this is 'proven' by looking at my and gerards machines.

the P4 /should/ have more RAM bandwidth than my AthlonXP 1800, but my
Athlon is the quicker. (just), despite this.
