Since Asus released a bios update that has PhenomII support for the M3A32-MVP I might just stick with it so we can know how they do with the old SB600 and no AOC.

I'm waiting for the X3s. Looking to get a 710 (2.6Ghz), or a 720 if I can afford it. I'm looking to change board as well though, probably grab the Foxconn AD7A 790GX board. Not liking the Biostar too much, too picky.

I have a small understanding of what ACC is and I don't think enthusiasts like us would ever utilize it. I think what it does is clock up your CPU when you use Fusion or AOD.

Go DFI 790GX, I am loving mine! Stable and a good OC'er.

Thats exactly what it is shadow, ACC basically does the overclock for you. It handles all the settings.

I'm guessing March-April when AM3 CPU's start showing up. Maybe February, not sure.

In lieu of buying a new monitor I think I am gonna wait on Phenom II until they get cheap. Plus my bday is in May so I will definitely get one then. Hopefully they will be 200-250$ because I don't think I can muster up anymore than that.

I wil sell my 9850 to my parents possibly, they want a new system and a barebones Asus system that supports a my phenom, 4Gb RAM, and has the HD3200 chipset and associated crap can be had for $400 at the egg. With ACC I might be able to push this chip up to a much better OC on the board included.

940/920 don't do DDR3
Correct. However, the 945BE offers both AM2+ and AM3 support. :). Certainly makes it a better value for those who hold out.

Well i think Foxconn A79A-S AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard is better then Foxconn A7DA-S AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Don't U think so ?

I prefer AOD Extreme unlike the other one. It OC config is great ;)

Well for one I wouldn't get Foxconn. I would go with DFI or ASUS if you're gonna be overclocking. 790GX is just a 790FX with onboard video and is a little weaker but I would rather have a good 790GX because they are cheaper.
