alright, my board supports 400/533mhz fsb cpus. im currently running a 2ghz 400mhz at 2.3ghz 46?mhz. now my q is i found a few cheap cpus that are 533mhz. i know my board will support, but when i go to o/c them is my board going to run over the 533? (still noobish at o/cing) and yes i know i need to just up my whole system

Now my question is, what is your board? Different brand names and boards have different overclocking abilities.

ECS is known to be one of the lowest quality brands when it comes to motherboards. So my guesses are it can't do that well. Plus if it supports 533/400 it means 533 is the maximum fsb that it will go, and possibly from experience, the maximum fsb is always lower than what they say its is.
