It looks like the Gigabyte 970A-UD3 and related can do this as well...
I was in the same situation, but got an Amazon gift card for $50, which helped out a bit on the CPU price. I picked up the 8320, and i'm not that terribly happy with the heat output so far. At least I have the option of disabling 1 module/2 cores and essentially turn it into a 6300.
I tried a few benchmarks with 1 module/core, and it didn't look too great. I think the extra cores do help a bit.
Now i'm trying to figure out what I want to run this thing as. Back to the situation you're in.
Current Projects: Bad spending habits--I need to stop buying AMD chips hoping they'll unlock. Only the Sempron has so far! 1/5 so far. ***
