Good in theory, I doubt I'd want to use a old mobo with a new CPU though. Besides, nothing will realy stop them doing a 180 and decide it's not worth while integrating support for DDR2 on a new gen CPU. The days of upgrading with longativity are long gone. If you truly wanted longetivity, one of those asrock mobos with would probably be the best buy.
Your not wrong there, same goes for buying only cheap DDR2 as DDR3 is just round the corner

The days of upgrading with longativity are long gone.
I've had my computer since early 2005, so roughly a year and a half, I intend on doing a gpu/ram/cpu upgrade soon and expect to go well over 3 years with this pc.

Upgrading and longativity are my main focus points on getting a new pc, why spend money on a whole new computer when I can spend more on parts which will make the computer last longer and go faster than ever?

Upgrades planned(*) and already done:

Athlon64 3000+ to X2 4400+*
1GB of RAM to 2GB*
6600GT to 8600*
Onboard AC'97 Audio to Creative X-Fi
1 80GB Hard Drive to 2 x 250GB RAID0
Old 5w RMS total 5.1 Speakers to Logitech x-530's
Microsoft Multimedia Keyboard to Logitech G15
Microsoft Basic Mouse to Logitech G7.
17" IBM CRT Monitor to BenQ 20" Widescreen LCD Panel
no headphones to Alessandro MS-1's.

Possibly:

That's a decent effort, I've nearly done nearly 2.5 years so far with my current setups They've been with me since Jan 2004 with a few updates here and there. Couple of northwoods both @ 3.7 with a 6800U and a 6800GS unlocked to Ultra. Conroe is tempting the pants off me but I'll hold out until the 45nm chips arrive.

I like many others here would like to do the same also but the sickness is just too strong
