    I'm thinking about buying a high end opteron board, but before i shell
    out the money i want to make sure that it'll be good for a while. Last
    week i was reading an article in PcMag which talked about the timeline
    for CPUs over the next two years(i'm starting to realize they put out
    this article every year around now). Anyway, i was reading about the
    new opterons slated to come out in the 4th Quarter of this year
    codenamed Venus Troy and Athens for the 100, 200, and 800 series
    respectively. Will motherboards out now be able to use these cpus? If
    so will they also be able to us the next update codenamed Denmark
    Italy and Egypt? I can't imagine the latter would be true, or anybody
    would know at this time, but i'm curious about the first thing.

    thx for the help,
