exactly. they thought about using bd on am3 but that would have disabled the latest features, hence am3+.

This ^

Get a forward compatible MB (AM3+), use old CPU (Phenom II X6) in the new board... Makes perfect sense to me..

When the 2nd generation of Bulldozer comes, upgrade to a Bulldozer CPU... (By then you may want a new CPU)
