2 URLS One Website?

I have a brand new idea for a niche. Now the problem is, I can't make up my mind as to what URL (domain) to use. So I have two of them - one of them has the right keywords, the other sounds hip.

For example, say we have ebaytradingmentor. com and ebayhunting. com (not the real urls but you get the idea).

Now do I
1) point both domains to the same website, so that all pages have two URLs,
2) 301 redirect one domain to the other?
or
3) Use only one domain and discard the other?

It hurts me so much since I can't compete with myself - so its gonna be only one site - but I LOVE both domain names equally - how the hell do I decide? It would be awesome if I could use both domain names - but how do I do that best?

Another option is that since the site of mine will have a forum - I could use one domain name for the forum, and another for the site itself - is this recommended?

No, the site is not yet off the ground - I am still in the planning stage.

All options are possible...

But, from a brand position, I'd go with the name that your users respond to the best.

Thanks peter - so that would be <foobar>hunting dot com, I take it?

So what use do I put the other keyword rich, damn good url?
Alright it is three words, but still all three words are good, and there noe "-" or anything of that sort.

Thanks!
