  1. Hi

    I have a athlon 64 3400+ 754 socket

    and a poor gigabyte motherboard with it :)

    Basically what i want to know is what motherboards out there have a PCI EXPRESS slot and a AGP 8x slot, and have sata2 (300mb/s) thats what im looking for :) other things like 1000mb/s lan and more than 2 memory slots would be great too.

    Ive looked everywhere and ive only found things that are for the 939 sockets :(

    Does anyone know of one? or a few? or where i can look?

    Thanks :)

    There is this board

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813153036

    but my hunch is that it is not a true AGP type slot. It is probably a PCI slot that has been bridged. In other words, it's probably a very poor performing AGP slot. Most boards that have both AGP and PCI-e 16x are not true AGP slots.

    It also does not support SATA2. I don't think there is a board that exists that meets all the criteria you have set above.

    Disclaimer, I know nothing about this board, just making guesses. It's AGP may be perfectly fine.
