Yes they are. At present I'm setting up a machine with that very type of 
processor and that is working fine. However, I am having a lot of issues 
with a different Asus MoBo (the A8N-SLI premium) in combination with a 
3ware 9500S-4LP RAID SATA controller.

If you need that controller, beware! If not, I think you should be in 
the clear, as without the RAID controller the MoBo + Athlon X2 4400 + 
FreeBSD 6 AMD64 seems to work a charm.
