    I just saw this annonced today:

    http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=newsdesc&news_no=646

    DKA790GX Platinum spec.
    • AMD 790GX/SB750 chipset based
    • Supports AMD Socket AM2+/AM2 Phenom, Athlon and Sempron processors
    • 2 PCI-E x16 slots for full x16 speed CrossFireX support
    • 4 dual channel DIMMs DDRII 533/667/800/1066 up to 8GB
    • 10/100/1000 LAN port
    • 7.1 channel surround Audio
    • 5 SATAII and 1 eSATA2 ports support RAID 0/1/0+1/5
    • 2 PCI-E x16, 2 PCI-E x1, 2 PCI slots
    • 12x USB 2.0, 1x IEEE1394
    • Built-in 1Gbit IGP Boost Memory
    • Equipped DrMOS on CPU VRM
    • Flat Circu-pipe cooling solution

    Should i keep my K9A Platinum or get the DKA790GX Platinum for future proofing.

    Apparantly the Platinum edition supports 140W CPUs and it should handle Deneb too.
