I still havent bought the corsair memory i was suppose to buy last week. the reason would be, while searching for a canadian online retailer i found site that has a retail store 10min away from my house:) Anyways, they somehow have the epox nforce2 mobo in stock. My question is which upgrade would give me a higher performance boost? Should i get that nforce2 and try to overclock a little more or get the corsair 256mb 3500cpt and try to push the memory to the max?

with the epox board you shold be able to overclock to a 200mhz bus.

The board will perform better with 2 ram sticks but even with just 1 it should rock.

if you dont mind doing vmods, than the ram would be a better route

if not, than go with the epox 8rda+ nforce2 board

what did you mean by doing voltage mods?

attach the correct resistors to the voltage regulators and give the vcore and the vmem more voltage to oc higher...assuming your board is the bottleneck and not your ram
