Default Re: Where is my bottleneck, now?

Yeah, you are right about the incompatibility with the mobo.

The 680i chipset can only handle up to the Wolfdale 45nm processors.

However, in looking at some of the initial previews of the Nehalem chip and the fact that it should be out in months is leading me to wait and just upgrade my subsystem entirely Q1 next year.

See below for a preview of Nehalem:
