lol can't go a day with out seeing the word "Nehalem" on the forums!!!!! Just joking but its true
. Can't wait till the day I get one these babies! It going be a long (around 2-3 years) wait for affordable prices but will be well worth the wait!

will Nehalem be able to run on older boards that already support ddr3 like the GIGABYTE GA-X48T-DQ6 ATX Intel Motherboardhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128330
or would i have to upgrade my motherboard to upgrade the CPU?
Nehalem chips only use Nehalem motherboards and vise visa. Nehalem is a new architecture (species) of computer technology. Don't think anything pre existing of Nehalem technology will be compatible with Nehalem like the x86 and x64 (older chips/mobos) architecture. Goodbye FSB
How can you OC without a FSB? ^ . ^
