    Have to wait for the new AMD 8 series chipsets IIRC.

    Basically it is not that hard to use that with AMD (compared to Intel P5x/H5x/Q5x, X58 has enough too) as there are enough pci-e lanes to connect extra chips. Interestingly you have to disable C1E and even C+Q if you want to use the max speed possible. But boards with extra chips are really expensive, so better think before you but em if you really need it. eSATA is maybe the smarter choice than usb 3.

    The upcoming MSI 890FX-GD70 is reported to have USB 3.0 and SATA 6 GB/s.

    Newegg has 3 AMD Gigabyte boards for sale, they have been available for a couple weeks now.
    GA-770TA-UD3
    GA-790XTA-UD4
    GA-790FXTA-UD5

    Fry's Electronics also has the GA-790XTA-UD4 in stock..I've been eying that one up for a new build..my trusty 939 single core system's getting a bit long in the tooth.

    I'd check out the boards at the Gigabyte website too for memory compatibility..some brands such as OCZ DDR3 1600 the recommended modules are tri-channel (6g)OCZ3P1600LV6GK rather than dual (4g) might just be a copy&paste error.. since they have 1 new board out for Intel.
