Default UBS3 for a new computer

I understand that in 2008 they come out with UBS3.At
the present time my computer is equipped with USB2.
What is needed to be able to run USB3 ? Can USB2 be
upgraded to USB3 ?

Since I am about to build a new one I wonder if I should
wait and get the proper hardware etc

Thanks for any input

Don't worry about it....USB 2.0 can transfer 480mb/s....usb drives and such have can't operate that fast so they haven't even maxed out USB 2.0 yet.

Which USB devices were you concerned about?

The design is supposed to be finished by 2008. We won't be seeing USB3.0 devices until 2009 or 2010.
