Mobos that are socket AM2 ready...

Which motherboards are capable of handling the new socket once it comes out??? For the ones that do, does that mean they can take DDR and DDR2???

ddr2 only. supposedly

MSI KAM2N Platinum

Intel 630
Raptor 360gb + Seagate sata 400gb
Pioneer DVR-106
Antec True350
Cheapest black USB keyboard from the Egg + Razer Viper

Some people don't deserve to have anything electronic other than a TV, and maybe a toaster, becuase they may hurt themselves and possibly someone else.

Good point, the ASRock board does claim to be able to take AM2 socket, but what about the DDR2. I think it would take a while for actual stable AM2 boards to be released.

Remenber that mem support is not up to the chipset anymore but to the chip being used, and their is no point in selling a board now with ddr2 as a dimm if their is no mem controller to support it.
