Which is better, higher CPU speed, or higher memory bandwidth?

I can run my 2.8Ghz Northy at either 3.4Ghz using the 5/4 divider, or I can run it at 3.15Ghz at 1/1. The difference is between 196FSB and 225FSB. Which would offer better overall performance? Does anyone know offhand?

I surmise that opening the bottleneck of the fsb will make a greater difference in most cases.

a benchmark should tell better than I though.

Better for what? In a lot of cases, more FSB would be good.
For folding, go for the highest CPU speed possible - and thats what matters most, right?

the highest cpu speed with a 1:1 ratio is best IMO

I say the FSB will be better, because truely speaking, FSB is what everything revolves around..
