The word on the street is that they will be AM3+ based.
AM3+ motherboards are said to be able to support current AM3 processors, but popping a bulldozer into a straight up AM3 board will not be functional.

Here we go again with xd's ideal $600 build, tiers above everything else on here yadda yadda yadda--
Phenom II x4 955 - $135.50
ASUS M4A79XTD EVO + Rosewill Challenger - $139, $124 AR
Corsair XMS3 1600 9-9-9 - $50, $40 AR
Corsair TX650W + ASUS GTX460 768MB - $235, $205 AR
Corsair A50 - $32.50, $22.50 AR
LG 22X DVD - $16
Samsung F3 1TB - $54 after promo code EMCZNNZ59
Price: $662 before mail in rebates, $597 after mail in rebates

EDIT: I see you've alraedy bought parts, this is a full suggestion but perhaps you could tie some of these suggestions into your existing parts.

Bulldozer will use the AM3+ socket, and won't be compatible with AM3 CPU's; however, the AM3+ socket/motherboards will be compatible with AM3.

No graphics card?

Edit: Nvm, see it. Nice build, I'll consider this. Though I currently have that same graphics card and I have a really annoying problem with it...
