X48? I've not seen anything suggesting that it's going to be much more than a highly-binned X38, perhaps with a few minor bells and whistles added. The price premium will probably be even worse than with X38. And DDR3 will probably still be some time coming down to a remotely reasonable price.

P35 is plenty for the vast majority of users. The main advantage of X38 will be multiple PCI-E x16 slots, but (quite likely) only for Crossfire. Most of the X38 boards coming out seem to have more robust power systems than the P35 boards, but that's only going to be an issue if you're looking for some serious overclocking.
