    Well my board is supposed to support the 9950 cpu, but after hearing some things about blown up boards, it makes me wonder.

    These are the new blend of 790FX and integrated Graphics processors. looks like I may skip the MSI 790FX board and grab one of these puppies in the full atx flavor.

    That first board is probably a DFI Blood Iron 780G-M2R. The Lanparty JR (mATX) 790GX-M2RS will have the solid caps and usual Lanparty colour scheme of its big brother pictured beneath, the DK 790GX-M2RS. A Phenom HTPC sounds like overkill but it would bring out best from the 790GX's integrated 3470 core.

    The x8/x8 limitation is annoyingly unavoidable but I'll live with it if they ditch the solitary PCI slot for another PCIe 1x on the final board.

    Asus already supports 140 watt CPUs, 790/780/770.
