Yup they are almost different mobos with the same model name. I used those two as it is the most blatant example of what I was saying. This is marketing pure and simple. I personally got burned by the AM2 vs AM2+ BS...and it looks like AMD is at it again. Call a spade a spade, cut the ties and make it require a new mobo. AMD is just as bad as Intel at this...but at least Intel is more honest about it and basically tells you NEED to buy a new mobo as the socket type is 100% different. None of this "+" nonsense.
