    There is a lot of factors that contribute to bottlenecks in a computer. Depending on the RAM speed and how fast the BUS is rated for will be a huge factor. Most motherboards have a maximum speed of RAM support which 'might' correlate to BUS speed. In any case, the HDD will always be the bottleneck.

    Definitely the HDD will be the bottleneck within the computer. The USB or network connection will be the bottleneck once you go outside the box and your internet connection will be slowest of all.

    As far as bus speed is concerned - usually the bus connected to the north bridge is faster than the bus connected to the south bridge (RAM is on the north bridge bus).

    all depends on the exact specs of the machine, you can say usually this and that, but only a true idea of what your machine is comprised of will be 100&#37; accurate.
