Which seems a bit incongruous at first blush since per Asus website the
A8V-E SE does support dual core and both boards use the same VIA K8T890
chipset but I guess there's some other stumbling block.

Been a busy boy as of late building systems for others.  Now it's my
turn and I've got a couple of the A8V-E SE's on order;-)  Can't wait!
Might be a mistake but I decided to forgo the dual core for now in
favor of a 3700+
