Default Good board for deneb?

So i've been looking for a board that will be good for right now, but will also support Deneb effectively. I found this board which looks extremely appealing, it's a 790fx sb750, any ideas?

Newegg.com - ASUS M3A79-T Deluxe AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

i think they all will support deneb no problem (the first 2 models of it - supposidly Q4, but read earlier today possibly jan. 9)
your biostar will be able to have it drop right in - BIOS update i would hope as well though.
AM2 socket will just have no DDR3 support (most of heard about compatibility)

computer i have now is being given to my aunt so i didn't put any real money into it, so i'll have to buy all new parts ne ways.

Still don't know if i want to go intel or amd, it's still up for debate, I guess Core i7 would be intelligent to wait fro since it's what... a month away?

A 790GX board would be more suitable

but wait it out

Yeah, this build I have now does run 10x better than my p4 did so I think I can wait another month or 2 until I build a real one... I REALLY hope that ddr3 memory is going to go down in price, because hoenstly i do not want to pay that much for memory.

Wow....umm you need to wait for it to actually come out.

No, just because its an AM2/AM2+ board doesn't mean it will run it. A lot of them wont even run any phenoms. ASUS tends to be very good with bios updates, i have no idea about biostar.

If I were you I would wait till they bring out the AM3 boards. DDr3 isn't as much as everyone says it is and I see no point in running Deneb on DDR2.
