I'd go with this psu instead that was listed before:
Newegg.com - Rosewill RG530-2 530W 80Plus Bronze Certified, ATX12V v2.3/EPS12V v2.91, SLI Ready, Active-PFC Power Supply, UL,FCC,CE,TUV,ROHS - Power Supplies

BFG don't make the greatest power supplies.

The 790 chipsets will support AM3 no problem, and so will some 780G boards. Like I mentioned earlier, grab the Biostar TA790GX 128M.

Will the Foxconn 780G support the P II X3/X4? I am considering upgrading in about a month or two to the quad

EDIT: Just checked Foxconn's website. Looks like it is compatible after Bios update!

:P The 780G chipsets have not much of a problem support the X4 940/920, since it is still technically AM2+. But with the new AM3 sockets, fewer 780G boards will support it methinks.
