I'm looking for a new socket 478 motherboard with pci-e support. The only one I've come across so far is the Asus P4GPL-X.

Anyone have any other suggestions or some good review links for the P4GPL-X?

They have those? Oh I didn't know...I knew they had PCI-E for AMD 754, but I never knew about Intel 478. Well, I don't know of any other mobos...sorry :(

Without a ton of detailed knowledge on this board I will throw out a caution flag. Almost all AGP/PCIe solutions have a crippled version of AGP. The only solution that I know has full AGP and PCIe is an Asrock board for AMD s939 CPUs. If someone has amplifying info on this boards implementation, then it would be much appreciated!
