No board for sale atm supports 32nm. Since they aren't out yet...

Just buy the X38 and wait, theres nothing else you or we can do.

Preliminary Nehalem Socket & Chipset Info!

i dont think the x38 could support it, even with a bios update. there are multiple like that... unless those sockets are just like 775...

once again we won't know until they are actually released.
Also points that the 780 i wouldn't be able to support it either, which still make the quad GT the better buy at this moment in time since its cheaper.
