I was looking at the same board at Tiger Direct. They have a smokin' deal on refurbs.http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4680349&CatId=2320
I wanted to pair it with the Athlon II X2 245. The product description is pretty spotty so I found this CPU Compatibility Chart on the XFX site.http://www.xfxforce.com/en-gb/products/motherboards/NVIDIA%20GeForceseries/~/ecms.ashx/XFXCPUCompatibilityList-AMD.pdf
It's odd that it lists everything from Sempron to Phenom II X4 with no mention of the Athlon II family.
