ddr3 gives u less then a 5% increase over ddr2, there is no point when it is much more then 5% price increase over ddr2.

I'm going to hold out until the first round of price drops on the nehalem chips. Basically the same thing i did this time around. I got the better revision of q6600 after the price dropped the first time around. My next big purchase will either be a house (real debt) or air ride for my car All depends on if i ever get hired on full time here or just keep temping until i die.

well yeah, I dont wanna pay huge prices, but this system will last for a while i hope. And with a graphics upgrade, or two(depending on how well those 4000 series do, I might be crossfiring with this x38).
