I certainly wouldn't make any moves until these chips come out and honestly get tested by enthusiasts.

Absolutely right. What do you do with a board all by itself.

Ha well I can use my old AM3 chip still basicly all i need is new ram and a new case and im ready to go
almost forgot to mention a ssd would be a nice add too

The new chip is optional right now in the air if you will

I agree with pparks and Whs, but it looks like a good board if you are only going to run 1 card.

I have an AMD rig, or at least I did until the MB died about a month ago. I've read about the new technology and it sounds quite good. I'm just waiting to see how it works first. I'll rebuild the other rig because I have too many parts laying around not to. But I'm waiting to see what they come out with. I'm not a fanboy of either side. I just like what works best.

makes me feel better knowing a few people out there know about the technology

I know TWEEK bought a AM3+board but havnt heard from him or talked to him about it

Im assumming the more boards they have the most likly they are to fail ? as in being able to operate and do the job without having a recall

Anyway I am looking around for a New case Ram -SSD possibly Im looking into taking this old rig and selling it for a couple hundred and taking that and throwing a extra HD6870 for some X-fire

The processors can wait a while because if i wait around im sure to get a top end one that will be pretty cool

one more thing i am unsure about is will my cpu cooler fit this new board or will i have to get a newer one hmmmm another question that needs answering

I am going to assume that the cooler would work. It seems that if the AM3 CPUs work that the AM3 coolers would work also.
