I am happy with my new mobo & cpu btw.Also, I have the 3200+ 64 chip, but
like you, it won't fit in future motherboards... unless >>>>>>> remember the
Pentium 3 chips that were slot one? Well, when they came out with the Socket

newer chips on the older motherboards.
Hopefully they will do the same for our CPU's. :o)
