Possibly the better option would be to go this route... there are combos on Ram as well. Get the 945 and Reaper DDR3 1600 combo from newegg for $225
Newegg.ca - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

And then order a reputable board from Direct canada... say this guy (MA790XT-UD4P) for $124
Gigabyte MA790XT-UD4P AMD790X ATX AM3 DDR3 2PCI-E SATA2 RAID Sound GLAN Motherboard - DirectCanada

So $350 plus taxes and shipping gets you into DDR3 and AM3.

Although I shouldnt be encourging anyone to go out and buy computer equipment, when you should be buying lumber (so I can go out and get new computer equipment).

When does this expire? I am deff looking into a nice 790/PII945 combo which would cost less than the processor alone at places like tigerdirect.

It hasn't expired yet. It's too bad they aren't the PHII 955, the unlock Multiplier could make things easier.
But thanks OP, just ordered one of the combo.

Mine should show up tomorrow. I bought a gigabyte 790x board from ncix, with a ram combo from the egg. I dont think the multi will make much difference as these things seem to max out around 3.8 I believe.
