    You guys have any idea if I could find a motherboard that supports the newer phenom II processors as well as ddr3 ram but can also be used with my phenon 9850 BE and the DDR2 1066 ram I have?

    Reason being I just want to get the motherboard for the moment and buy the Phenom II and ram in a month and half.

    I know My motherboard is able to run Phenom II processors though right now but dont want to get that first.

    Thanks.

    You won't be able to find a board that supports both DDR2 and DDR3 ram as they're physically different... Best buy the CPU first then upgrade the motherboard and ram together.
