The 975x seems to be a very good chipset for dealing with memory bandwidth but its difficult to attain high FSB without volt mods. I couldn't overclock my E6600 over 3.33Ghz on air when I had a P5W DH Deluxe, though I've hit 3.75Ghz so far with the P5N32-E SLi (680i).

Graphics Solutions mean what you can do with it in terms of video cards.

The X38 is:

Intel next generation performance / enthusiast / overclockers chipset. Intel will be releasing the DX38BT "Bone Trail" motherboard to replace the XBX2. This will be (by my prediction) the premier motherboard to have.

Features of the X38:
  • Based on the next-generation X38 Express chipset (MCH)
  • Intel Duo/Quad/Extreme (dual and quad) Core support at up to 1333MHz FSB, dual channel DDR2/DDR3 memory support with Fast Memory Access technology
  • Intel ICH9 southbridge, 12 USB ports, supporting up to 6 additional PCI Express 1.1(a) lanes [physics card upgrade support], GBit LAN
  • 2x PCI Express 2.0 16x ports (backwards compatable with PCI Express 1.1 specification), Crossfire is supported
  • 6x SATA 3.0GB/s ports, Intel Maxtrix Storage Technology (RAID)
  • Intel High Definition (HD) Technology
  • Full overclocking/overvoltage options via BIOS and NEW Windows GUI utility for overclocking, including auto-tune capabilities
Currently there is no better motherboard than the D975XBX2 on the market. The DX38BT will replace that.

Do you think the most intelligent thing for me to do is sit with my current rig and give it 6 months to see how the market adjusts? Currently as it is right now everything ones fine with the exception of World of Warcraft in Shattrath City lol.

I'm thinking the X38 with the DDR3 will be a lot better?

I am not normally one to suggest waiting. However, if you have a perfecting functioning Core 2 Duo setup, there is absolutely no need to upgrade to P35. You will be disappointed when those of us with X38 are running circles around the P35 based motherboards.

Only Intel performance motherboards are worthwhile touching. Those are:

Intel D975XBX (phased out)
Intel D975XBX2 (current flagship model)
Intel DX38BT (Release Q3 07)

Well in your professional opinion you think I should buy the X38 in the 3rd quarter?

I am not a professional, so I cannot give you a professional opinion.

However, I myself am waiting for X38 (specifically the DX38BT) in Q3 07.
