Edit, also one might be inclined to ask why you have such a hardon for the p5k when at this point it will actually cost him money to get it.
Because Abit isnt always known to make the best stuff, and thier is no need for the X38.

And who says X48 is going to be DDR3? Remember when we thought the G92 could be 9 series, or was the 8700GTS?

64 bit is the wave of the future. Also if you plan to run more than 3gb of system/video memory.
