Default Cheap Conroe MOBO solution...

Seems to be a while before DFI will come out with a conroe board, but I think I found an excellent solution if you MUST have conroe now:

or if you dont want to screw around with open box

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157092

from what I understand those support conroe right?

Supports both AGP and PCI-e, supports conroe. Read these:

AnandTech Conroe Buying Guide

OCworkbench - ASRock 775Dual-VSTA benchmark

~30 bucks for a conroe motherboard seems to be an inexpensive solution.
