yeah you can get those boards for C2D as well. I haven't heard of anyone using one though I would go with the full motherboard instead

ya that sounds like a waste of money to me to buy a separate board to upgrade your cpu. just get one of the AM2+ boards that comes out during the same time as the new am2+ cpus. you will probably be much better off doing that.

thats what i meant. it has a slot above the graphics card slot, where a separate board ("AM2CPU Board") can go in, onto which a am2 cpu can be used.
I had an Asrock Dual SATAII in my old system, which i think is quite similar - if not the same mobo. AM2 wasnt released for another 6 months after it and the main problem i see with it is that it doesnt support DDR2.

I know the 'future' cpu socket thing was designed so it could handle a 940pin cpu - but im not sure if it really is AM2...
