    Not a deal breaker, but would be nice
    I think that only 790GX motherboards have ACC although I could be wrong here.

    That would be unfortunate, given the price of a 790GX motherboard compared to this would be enough to pay for another core

    I got the impression the ACC hardware support was actually in the southbridge, but it all seems rather confused.

    Considering that the Phenom II X4 940 is dropping in price to around £160 to £170 then you could be right!!

    Re: Asus 780G v Geforce 8200

    I think I head a rumour that ASRock were releasing a 780G board which uses the SB710 southbridge, which *does* have ACC (it's basically the SB750 without Raid 5), but I've not seen an example on etail yet. The 760G chipset uses SB710 by default, but the graphics core is a somewhat cut down version of the 780Gs (no HD support, for one thing) so it's probably only really worth looking at that if you're going for discreet graphics anyway. Given that Scan have a couple Biostar 790GX boards for < &#163;80 it's not really that much more expensive...
