third, both are high, I would say next would be high frequency memory, most of the time low frequency memory will not allow full potential of cpu.

Depends on the platform. Newer AMD chips (A64, AM2) do not need an insanely high memory bandwidth to get good results. Pentiums are really memory bandwidth starved. I have no idea on Conroe's since I don't own one and have no first hand OC experience with them.
