At first i was sold on a build with all the current best parts, waiting for the 9800 and 790i so i could run ddr3. However, theres alot of talk about ddr3 being scrapped for next gen ram (PRAM, FRAM, etc_ techs soon to arrive. I dont see the point in dropping 2G's plus now in a top of the line system, when nehalem comes out toward the end of the year and by then all your setup is obsolete. I think a nehalem with 9800's would be my best bet, does anyone know any motherboards that are in productiion or will be out when nehalem is out that will support nehalem? thanks

Golden rule of computer hardware:

Whatever you buy it will eventually become obsolete. Usually sooner rather than later. In this day and age, anything over 12months old is considered obsolete.
There is always something new, something better and something cheaper just round the corner.
If you constantly wait for new technology, you'd never buy anything because things change so quickly.

I fully agree with Neil. Don't look towards things that will be released a year away as there will always be something better around the corner. You can plan the waiting game, but in the end, you'll never build your computer. I personally cannot see DDR3 being scraped any time soon.
