Anyone know if the Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe (link below) will support a 65W CPU? It doesnt seem to specify in the board specs, but I figure someone has to have experienced or tried this.

Whats the deal with the lower wattage anyway? Is it really a big deal? All of the regular 89W chips seem to be out of stock.

Any advice appreciated, as I'm looking to order very soon. Already have the board and RAM on the way.

It works. You might have to update the BIOS, but that's the only thing you'll have to do. The lower wattage processors are really just that: lower wattage.
