    - Singel processor based mainboard (can be INTEL or AMD based board!)
    - 1 AGP 8x Graphic Slot.
    - Minimal 2 PCI slots.
    - Minimal 1 PCI-X 64bit slot
    (please do not confused by PCI-e that sometimes is wrong credited as

    If you can help me, please give me: brand & model number of the board.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you want PCI-X and AGP 8X from Tyan - or just about any other
    motherboard manufacturer - you are going to have to get a dualie
    motherboard. Nothing says you can't leave one of the CPU sockets
    empty. Now that almost everyone wants PCI-E, many bargains can
    be found for new and used dualie motherboards that don't have
    PCI-E. A friend of mine, for example, got a Tyan S2885 last
    month for $200 from someone who upgraded to a S2895.

    SuperMicro, however, does (or at least used to) make a board that
    fits your description. I can't remember the model number so you
    are going to have to look for yourself at www.supermicro.com.
    The hard part will be finding someone to sell you a single board.

    Other than the SuperMicro board, the only single socket
    motherboard with PCI-X that I have heard of was a socket 479 (for
    Pentium-M). Made by A-Open or DFI - can't remember which. It
    only had AGP 4x but I don't think you should let that deter you -
    even 3+ years after the debute of AGP 8x, video cards do very
    little to take advantage of it.
