It supports up to the Phenom II X3. And what's wrong with an extra 1TB of storage at that price? Lol.

Nothing's wrong with an 1TB of storage. That's what drew me to it. It's just that the AMD 790/SB750 is a much better performing chipset for the new AM2+ and AM3 processors than the GeForce 8200.

Undoubtedly true. He could get a very nice open box version of the ASUS 790FX mobo for $130.
