Right now I see no need to move to DDR3! Right now, I can get higher performance out of my ddr2 FOR LESS than the cost of a half decent ddr3 kit. I don't know why people are so eager to go with a ddr3/am3 board if it uses the same chipset as the am2+ boards.

Am3 cpu's pop right into most, if not all am2+ boards, and even into some am2 boards. I figure, if they're not bringing anything new to the table (i.e new architecture or chipset or something), there is no need to go ddr3 exclusively.

Until Bulldozer, I'm staying at ddr2. It makes sense :)
