currently ddr3 mobos are not worth it, just get a p35-ds3r, and upgrade when better ddr3 boards and ram are out

I think theres only one and you probably don't want it cause it might be a bit buggy. Just get a dd2 motherboard and if you really want dd3 then get a new motherboard when its a little cheaper and better.

Edit: this is the only dd2 and ddr3 board I know of

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35C-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Yeh it wont be mainstream for probably at least 2 years. Do you really want the same mobo then to upgrade to ddr3?

some benchmarks show that DDR3 is slower than DDR2, strange eh? just like when DDR2 first came out, it was terribly slower than DDR.

...because DDR3 has higher and looser timings than DDR2, same goes for DDR2 over DDR. Over time, they will tighten up, and they will be worth looking into.

yep eventually, ddr3 ram will become cheaper than ddr2 that will be weird
