Re: future rig
hey 4fingerninja, i have a brand new A8n-5x that zipzoomfly.com sent to me by accident, i have never used the motherboard, and it is brand new. If you end up going with socket 939 ill be more than willing to part with it for $40. it is a MUCH better mobo than the one that you have selected. and its completely new.
apart from that, I am running two socket 939 machines right now, and although i'd recommend going with a new platform for the sake of keeping up, i personally dont see the need to upgrade until octocore!.
