Exclamation New E6420 Installed And Overclocked

Just got my e6420 today i installed it and ran 3dmark06 and got 8065 then i went in the bios and put the fsb up 35mhz to 300fsb that set the cpu at 2.4ghz now i get a 8432 4dmark score .. i cant go any more then 300fsb !! because my bios does not let you go any more then 300fsb So its got me thinking i should get a new motherboard ive got about $ 200 i can spend i was thinking the Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R Gigabyte @ ITSDirect - Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R Intel P35 Chipset Socket 775 Motherboard: In Stock

Or the Gigabyte GA-N650SLI-DS4 nVidia 650i Gigabyte @ ITSDirect - Gigabyte GA-N650SLI-DS4 nVidia 650i Chipset Socket 775 Motherboard: In Stock

So its out of those two what are all your thoughts ? Also i heard that the n650i has **** poor chipset drivers for games ? That will be bad cause thats all i use my pc for is games and internet !!!!!!!!
