    Which S939 MB for AGP cards?

    Upgrading the old man'a comp for him. He want's a A64 system but he does not want to buy a new gfx card, as his currnet card does him fine.

    Can you get any NF4 AGP boards? If not which one should we go for, not fussed about make.

    Cheers.

    AFAIK all NF4 are PCI-E. You need NF3 based mobo or K8T800 based mobo for AGP. Here's the cheapest at ebuyer

    Abit AV8 on K8T800 is a very very good board... esp with 3rd Eye enabled.. OC on the fly.. Window based OC utility... Auto-Run is a bliss if you want to customise certain OC on particular programs.. like keeping stuff cool when ur not fragging.. and rev your system up when u rip someone's head off in BF2..

    Some complaints on the NBB ceiling tho... tops at 300MHz HTT.. but other than that... rock stable at any other frequencies.. lots of tweaks on mGURU.. Everything you need on a enthusiast VIA board.. allows my 3500+ to do 2.83Ghz with no stability issues watsoever..

    Heard good stuff about Epox 9NDA3+... was on my shopping list until I decided to go with a 10 quid cheaper AV8 3rd Eye

    Nforce vs VIA... thats the only difference.. VIA are normally cheaper and wont burn a hole in your wallet while still providing awsome performance
    Me want Ultrabook
