Why not sell the DDR2 RAM? Or RMA it to the manufacturer/retailer? Or put it aside for when the X2 is released?

What would be the point its a lot of money to RMA back... And if i get a processor now i cant use DDR2 if i even do get a new mobo like may next year.

Plus i wont have any ram.. So i wont goto AMD until next year.. Any recommendations for intel mobo?

A good intel mobo should use the 955x chipset. I would look into ASUS or DFI. They are good mobo makers.
