DDR3 clocked at 1,600mhz or higher is where the noticeable performance increase begins. Anything under that speed is not worth the money and don't show much if any performance boost over DDR2.

So you'll be forking over twice the dough for like minimal performance increase.

Agreed, its just not there yet. Unless you are building with the intent to go Nehalem in a month or two (I don't know why you would) then there is no practical reason to go DDr3.

^^ That motherboard is really old. A p45 would be cheaper and better.

Wow man that's a 975. I'm surprised they still carry it. I know a lot of OEMs will use things like that, but we like to be up to date.

EDIT:
why does it cost over $200?

Wow... $225 for a 975X Bad Axe 2? HECK NOOOOO!

The I45 owns it, and actually has support for 1333fsb CPU's
