t is very conceivable that games will start utilizing more cores

thats my whole point. it wasnt long ago that the vast majority of games only made use of two threads. that is changing now but its hard to tell if it will hit a wall at 4 or go on to effectively use 8.
that being said, i dont see a point in investing a lot of money in a board and cpu right now since we are 18 months away from mainstream ddr4

Hard to tell what direction it will take for sure especially since I am not a game designer. I don't know what they need and what they can do obviously. what's the story with ddr4? Is that to replace all the ddr3 ram?

yeah itll replace ddr3 the same way ddr3 replaced ddr2.

ddr4 will be twice as fast, which will be great for virtual ramdisks and servers, but will have real effect on mainstream computing as there are no applications i can think of that suffer a ram bottleneck.

regardless of its usefulness to gamers, id hate to spend a lot of money upgrading right now when your equipment will be obsolete in such a short time. it would be like building a new system featuring an AGP slot just before PCIx came out. it really limits your options down the road.
