I've been contemplating re-building my PC as a LAN party box; I guess I know what mobo I'm using.

Hopefully when they say "AMD", they mean "AM2+" so I can re-use my current CPU and RAM.

 I don't think it would be anything less. Either AM2+ or AM3

 Are those DIP switches I spy at the bottom of the board? Haven't seen those in a while. It's nice to finally see some love to the mATX crowd. And with ATi pumping out the visuals on this motherboard, it'll make an awesome HTPC, or starter gaming rig!

2 PCI-E 16x ports, means that even if you start off w/onboard visuals, graduating to single or CrossFireX won't be an issue. One thing that wasn't mentioned, was does this mobo use Sideport memory (aka dedicated memory for an IGP)

I have a micro-ATX build I'm planning to do soon, and this board just became a candidate for it.  Sounds like an awesome set of features.
