Yeah... I managed to pick up the board for my dad on clearance for $100... shortly after that I switched from 1333MHz RAM to 1600MHz, and a guy at work happened to have an old processor he didn't want. With that much of the system completed, I figured what the heck, I'll buy myself a second HD 4670, and let my dad use it until he gets his own video card, and let him get himself another CPU when he's good and ready. Basically, it was a great opportunity for him to transition from Socket A to LGA 775 for a mere hundred bucks. I guess I shouldn't be surprised ASUS had no intention of having such a CPU run off that motherboard!
