939 motherboard both agp & PCI Express slot

  1. I apologise if this has been asked before but can anyone recommend a 939
    socket motherboard that has both pci and agp trying to upgrade a pretty high
    spec system the cheapest way taking into account just bought a 7800gs NVIDIA
    agp card. System presently has 4x 300gb sata drives and 4x ide devices along
    with 2 gig ocz platinum memory and 3400mhz athlon 64 processor. basically I
    think my cheapest option is to switch to 939 socket in some form with maybe
    a 3800 due to financial restraints but I don't want to bin the 7800 agp as
    its so new but it would give me a pci upgrade path later or would I be
    better staying with my msi 754 socket board and changing to the 3700
    processor which are getting rare as hell thank god for e-bay thanks for any

    Ebay is a wonderful place to find AGP boards from those upgrading to PCI-e.

    Wanting a dual agp/pci-e solution puts you into a "niche" market. That means
    your less likely to find mainstream solutions from the big chipset or board

  3. Are there any other boards besides the Asroc that offer the same?
    It would be nice to see one w/ a few more higher end features.

    Nothing else with full agp support as far as I know.

    What higher end features are you looking for??? at $65.00 bucks??
    I've got this board on one of my systems running with an Opteron
    148...started with an AGP video card..now running a PCI-E video card.
    Running 3 SATA HD plus 2 DVD burners.If I run Everest tests it beats my 64x2
    3800 with a better video card 8 out of 10 tests.
    If I run Sandra the results are the same.
    The BIOS is easy to setup and OC...even if there could be a few more
    The ULI chipset has given me less problems than the Nvidea chipset.
