DDR init code is easier, but almost all current processors have DDR2 or

Great. Can we pick a socket AM2 board with these chips? Such boards are
more readily available than socket 939 boards and usually they are also
cheaper. A list of socket AM2 boards with K8T890/K8M890, availability
and price in Germany follows:

Asrock ALiveSATA2-GLAN, K8T890 (50 €)
Asus M2V, K8T890 (63 €, difficult to get)
Asus M2V-X (unavailable)
Asus M2V-TVM, K8M890 (49 €, difficult to get)
Asus M2V-MX, K8M890 (43 €)
Asus M2V-MX SE, K8M890 (38 €)
Foxconn K8M890M2MA-RS2H, K8M890 (40 €)
Foxconn K8M890M2MB-RS2H, K8M890 (36 €)
MSI K9VGM-V, K8M890 (38 €)

That's really expensive.

See above for my preferences. However, it would be great if we had a
board supported in v2 before we try to port it to v3.
