    Really pisses me off!!! I sold my M3A32-Deluxe 2wks ago and bought the M3A79-T Deluxe, not knowing these would soon be coming out. I guess I need to pay more attention:banghead:

    Pretty sure it's just the M3A series with small revisions and out of the box 100% PII support. I wouldn't say they are worth trading a M3A79 for a M4A79 tho..

    Those are nice. But why do AMD get all the crappy looking boards. I want shiny heatpipes!!

    Actually that FX board has been out for at least 2 weeks now since newegg has it listed. It might be more, I almost bought it but I'm waiting for the AM3 boards first to see the prices. I'm especially interested in the M4A79-T board. :)

    Because the chipsets don't get hot at all.. The 790GX in my HTPC stay at room temperature even under 100% load and it's got a small little heatsink.

    I have the M4A79 Deluxe. Actually a very nice looking board, other than that it is as Shadow says, very similar to the 79-T with "out of the box" PII support.
