Pentium D Boards w/DDR3?

I saw this on NewEgg and it hit me:
Intel Pentium D 820 Smithfield 2.8GHz LGA 775 Dual-Core
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116389

I suddenly had the urge to just buy something like three of those guys and just build this weekend.

Add to that the fact that I have some sticks of Corsair 4GB DDR3 lying around. And, oh, here's that PSU I never used!

But it seems that my search for a LGA775 mobo with DDR3 is of no avail. Although I hear JetWay makes one but...I've heard bad things about JetWay.

So does anyone know of a LGA775 that supports Pentium D and DDR3?

If not, how about a quality LGA775 Mobo?

Thanks!

    PS: does the CPU even support DDR3, I am just curious.

    Tomshardware should make a $2000 build using this board just to see how things goes.

    That seems like a nice looking board. It will also allow me to upgrade later (if I so please).
