There was a list started sometime back but it does not look up to date. There were several boards scheduled to be available on 7/20, today, but I have not seen them yet. All the main mfgs have mATX scheduled. ASUS, MSI, and Gigabyte should have several mATX available soon.

The answer on Socket T compatibility I think is 'no' except for specific upgraded versions like MSI P4N, version 2.0.

how long do you think it will take these these things to hit the market, im sure the prices will drop by then on the 3800 :(

There will be a lot of activity as soon as the Conroes are available. I have not seen a firm date yet but hope to see the Core2 processors before the end of the month. Probably will see the mobos launch then too.
