    If you're into performance and are willing to be patient, I would definitely wait for the x48 since that its coming not too soon after the x38 from what I've read as of late.

    to my understanding X48 is going to be merely higher binned X38 chipsets sold at a premium to an already high price tag, so not a big deal

    not for a while, DDR2 is very efficient and prices are dirt low, not to mention memory is becoming more trivial with every new CPU release as L2 Cache just keeps rising
