That is the # of the 1090T CPU. It is seperate from the MB.

I understand that. I'm probably being too picky, but I want something that specifically says that this particular AM3 processor will work.

The number was given for reference. I understand that it is not part of the MB. I was trying to match it with the chart that I linked.

I went ahead and ordered it from Amazon, because they were much cheaper than anyone else, and just during the time that we have been discussing it on this thread, their shipping time increased from 2-4 weeks, to 2-5 weeks. Got the feeling that I have been generating sales for them. If I learn that there is a compatibility problem with my components, I will simply cancel the order...there's plenty of time for that.

I've had minor problems with both, which were resolved immediately. I recommend both of them

Seeker, are you going for the new Bulldozer 8-core CPU? It is supposed to be out soon. Q2 2011 was the projected release time, and that is nearly passed.

I sent a question to ASRock support, regarding whether my Nvidia GTX460 SC video card would work with this motherboard, and here is the response:

Quote:
If you did not see any NVidia card is because this model is recommended to work a 100 better with ATI video cards .
Please check our website about Video card support list.
The only list that I found specifically for the 890FX Deluxe 4 only specified Crossfire, which is for multiple ATI cards. Does that mean that it wouldn't work with a single video card...even ATI? Here is a link:

ASRock > Products > 890FX Deluxe4 > CrossFire Support List

There is a more general list, which includes some Nvidia cards (not mine), but it does not include any AM3 motherboards, which I understand that this is:

http://www.asrock.com/support/vga.asp

Even this list doesn't have a column for a single card, does this mean that I need to also buy a new video card(s)?

No, I thought about getting the Deluxe 5, just for future proofing, but I already have a brand new 1090T, so the Deluxe 4 would be adequate.

I'm having a difficult time trying to decide whether to cancel my order on this motherboard. I could really use some opinions and insights.

I'd recommend Asus not its offbrand:

Newegg.com - ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

This is practically at the top of the AMD motherboard pile, but no Bulldozer support.
