Thatís likely best if you can wait.
Nehalem replaces the FSB with Quick Path Interconnect.
(more if your really really interested http://www.intel.com/technology/quickpath/whitepaper.pdf )
The important thing is its gets the memory off the FSB, one of the bigger system bottle necks.
Then Quads can get access to resources without waiting for each other.

Invalid statement unless you provide your reasoning.

I mean, come on. A person who has 2000+ posts should know this by now.

At this point nothing have proven for Nehalem to even remotely be worthwhile at this point in time and someone making a statement like yourself should know this.

Its going to take a few years maybe more for something like Nehalem to becomes mainstream and affordable and usuable enough for most people to warrant the upgrade.

By the time this happens the next gen cpu will be out anyways.

We haven't even begun to touch the surface of dual core cpus let alone quad core processors.

You are being more negative than usual. What is wrong with waiting for the latest technology to dip in price?
