So I'm looking at getting the following next week, should I wait for Nehalem... if so how long would you estimate the wait be for a q9450 replacement and mobo?


Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 Yorkfield.........$330 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115042)
ZALMAN 9700 110mm Ultra Quiet CPU Cooler..$80 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118020&Tpk=zalman%2b9700)
ASUS P5Q LGA 775 Intel P45 Intel Mobo ....$130 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131295)
G.SKILL 4GB(2x2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 1000 .....$85 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231145)


I'm thinking if its over 6 months I should pull the rigger now, I haven't seen any preview benches, what's expected 10-20% improvement?

Thoughts... anything better at similar price?

Thanks in advance...

We should learn about Nehalem release dates and pricing at Intel Developer Forum (IDF), San Francisco, US, Aug. 19-21, 2008
I think the cost is going to be higher than you're planning to spend.
