Default E4300 motherboard?

I’m really trying to wait until Q2 for the E6320 with the 4MB cache, but IDK if I can make my PC last that long. I heard that the E4300 is coming out next week, so I was considering going for that. I read that it’s only an 800 MHz FSB, so I would be able to get a cheaper mobo as well then right? One that only supports 800 MHz instead of the PB5-E or DS3 that I was thinking about? If so, can you link some good ones that I can check out?

If the E4300 is in fact coming out next week, I suggest you do get a mobo that supports the 1066mhz, because thats what the E6320 is I believe. So there would be no sense in spending extra money later on when its not needed. You could spend the little bit extra now, or spend a lot more later.

Well, several press releases said Jan 21st, but I know how tenuous those are sometimes. I guess I could get a 1066 FSB board and then upgrade the CPU later, but I really only want to buy once. If that were the case, I’d probably go for the 680i with the 1333 FSB so that I could take advantage of those CPU’s when they are released later this year.
