Not yet another reason to wait…

180px-Certified_Superspeeed_USB_logo.svgJust as I was about to make a move and get all the components, there was an article on the net today, mentioning Asus is now rolling out new MB with USB 3.0 capability as well as a USB 3.0 PCI card.

This project have been postponed so many times, firstly I was waiting for the Core i7, then it was the Windows 7 and now USB 3.0… As I am in no rush, thus logically it would make more sense to wait, but in terms of greed, I just want to get on with it.

180px-USB_3.0_Icon.svgAdmittedly none of the peripherals are USB 3.0 yet, but soon they will arrive like rain in the monsoon season… I’d guess I could get one of those USB 3.0 PCI card… … … … …

After a large cup of green tea, and debated like a total mad man (literally like a mad mad, as I was arguing with myself), the logic side won, this project is once again on hold, as this isn’t like a new piece of hardware that gets upgraded regularly (e.g. graphic card or CPU and etc.) but it is a new technology which rarely comes along (the next big one which looks interesting is the Light Peak from Intel).

It was worth it to have waited for Core i7 and Windows 7, I am guessing another 3 months won’t do any harm :), just needed to be more patience :) and be less greedy :)
