i'm looking into a custom build computer and have all the parts figured out but i'm stumped on the motherboard. the one i picked which is the M4A79XTD EVO doesn't seem to be on the list for supporting the new X6 cpu's. love the board and layout but not sure on the support factor if asus evens gets it to support the new cpus. it seems it's the only one of asus missing on the list. should i look for another board? and if so what would be best for crossfire and good layout without blocking too much for around 130 or so? i'm only getting a x3 2.8 be heka cpu for now and oc and unlock it for now and upgrade later.
