Same boat here. I plan on riding my new rig for at least 5-6 years before cranking up the OC - I have the cooling for it anyways. Nehalem is good but not THAT good in its current proposed incarnation. I will probably skip right over the first 2 gens before I upgrade. In the mean time, I'm having fun with my X48.
