does anyone put out a motherboard with both an AGP slot and a PCIe slot....I thought I read a discussion about a board that does but I cant remember

I might have to use my 6800 GT oc AGP card for now...but it would be nice not to have to upgrade my mobo again when i can eventually go with a 7800 or 7900


for my info..does the PCIe slot for a video card have to be x16????


Any info would be great

Thanks

Ive got one of these motherboards running a AMD 64 3800+ x2 with a 7900GT 256mb PCIE , its a cracking piece of kit.

Running Windows Vista no problems at all :)

When describing a product you are familiar with, why not use English so the rest of us can understand what you're trying to convey?

Asrock 939 dual sata2 .... I had this bord for a couple of months, I was in the same situation as you and I was really pleased with it, like it said in thg's article, not the fastest board around but probably the best for the $

there is a new thing I saw, is that you can use agp adaptators for PCIE (only nvidias), there is agp pro too and agp express that both card bus supported. keep that in mind :p  :p

He is, that's an exceedingly English phrase.
Not surprised that you colonials don't understand though :lol:  (just kidding)

I believe the term "cracking" is used in Wallace & Gromit. :D 

Anyhow. The combo AGP/PCIe motherboards are few and far between. I think MSI offered a model too. I'm not certain as to the socket type.

Sorry to be using English terms , but I really would have thought that you Yanks would understand english phrases through watching quality british imports like Monty Pythons Flying Circus :D 


@ kkelis , I installed X64 drivers from the asrock website m8 , but what you have to do is after installing them , vista fails on the install - restart and when vista is loading up press f8 and choose Disable Driver Signature Check.

It work fine after that m8 :) 

And @ rodney_ws , as English comes from ENGLAND , I was speaking correctly :D  , as I am English through and through.

So dont get your knickers in a twist :D 

lol
