AGP and PC-Express on same motherboard?

Archived from groups: alt.comp.hardware.pc-homebuilt (More info?)

Hi, I have an AGP video card that I plan on using for awhile until I
can save up enough (and convince my wife) to buy a PCI-Express video
card. I'm curious if there are any motherboards out there that
support P4 HT, 800 MHz FSB, and both AGP and PCI-Express.

I've looked at Asus and Intel websites, and can't find any boards that
fit this description. In fact, I can't seem to find any manufacturers
that provide support for both AGP and PCI-Express. I do understand
why the market doesn't want to support both.

If there are none, I'm looking for the "best" P4-HT board available
that supports AGP. Seems like I heard there are some intel 915 boards
that support AGP, but I couldn't find any. :|

Advice is appreciated.

    I am NOT aware of any boards currently that support both AGP and PCI-e; it
    would be very expensive to manufacture and space limiting. The best and
    most stable board currently on the market with AGP is probably the Asus
    P4C800E-Deluxe. Highly recommended.

    Wait.

    PCI-express is too new to start throwing $$ at it when you have no real "need"
    for it.
