8* Multiplier vs. 9*Multiplier

What is more better and important in overclocking, increasing multiplier or increasing the FSB?
If FSB is important, then which of the following senarios is a better solution for my Q6600:
9multiplier X 311FSB = 2.8GHz
8multiplier X 350FSB = 2.8GHz

thanks in advance.....

    For a given core speed with a Core2 system, performance does not scale linearly with an FSB increase. A pretty good benchmark can tell the difference, but I doubt if you will notice.

    And stability is harder to achieve at higher FSB frequencies.

    I run my CPU multiplier maxed out.
