Actually, experts said DDR3 is not going to become main until the end of 2008. It does make some sense as it took a while for DDR2 to coming on top of DDR couple years ago.
Both P35 and X38 are optimized for DDR3 but it didn't help. Buying a DDR3 that rated at similar clock speed (anything lower than PC3-10666) to a DDR2 doesn't increase performance much if any. But it you are planning to get PC3-14400, that is another story.
