I'm looking at buying one of these guys when they come out, the x3 really isn't cuttin it for me. I currently have an ASROCK M3A785GXH/128M (which uses the 785 chipset), and I wanted to know if the two will work together?

I believe a few here have that board and are still awaiting word on a bios update.
That is all that will be needed for that chipset provided the manufactor puts out an update.

Sounds more like they are just playing it safe with AMD cause we already know gigabyte has 790, 785, and 770 chipset bios's for x6

Reading your mind Guru, the 965 is a bit of a bottleneck with your tri-crossfire setup.

X6 should be a godsend, especially with games like BFBC2.
