Lower the FSB and set the memory from 2.5 to 2 or raise the FSB and relax the memory timings.


Higher FSB or tighter memory settings?

I know, I need a serious upgrade in hardware, but I am waiting for DDR 3 and AMD quad core cpu's.

Higher FSB is always better. I played with this a lot a few years back, during my overclocking phase.


FSB directly affects all performance (memory, math, etc.), memory timing is only a small percentage improvement to read/write tasks.

It really depends on the board and the platform but FSB almost always wins.
