Would you say its better to have a high NB or high CPU. e.g. 2800 nb with 2500 cpu or 2600 cpu with 2500 nb

It's more of a balancing act than a plain CPU > NB.

Random example, 4000mhz CPU and 2000 NB won't run as good as 3500mhz CPU and 2500 NB.
So in this case Mhz NB > Mhz CPU.

Do you think i should try 3.7ghz cpu? but thats most likely unstable... if 3.6 is stable ill just start raising fsb bit by bit until its unstable
