Need help from AGP / Socket 775 overclockers

I am new to overclocking. Until recently, I have not bothered to overclock. However, after being an avid reader of, I decided to take the dive into the world of Core 2 Duo overclocking.

It is great. I am hooked. So here is the problem...

I have a video editing machine and a server with the exact same specs (including an AGP Radeon 9800 Pro & Quadro Pro FX1100). I plan to "retire" the machines to the kids without the video cards.

I want to build 2 Core 2 Duo Socket 775 machine and use my AGP video cards in them. I have found a couple Socket 775 boards that support Core 2 Duo chips and have AGP slots.

I am looking for opinions or reviews from overclockers who are currently or have previously used a Socket 775 board with Core 2 Duo support AND and AGP video slot. I would obviously like to find one that I can overclock an 1.8 or 2.13GHz C2D CPU.

Please let me know which boards can support overclocking that meet the requirements.

    Seen your post perusing this forum Speak German?I've heard really good things about this mobo,according to my research. they ship to USA. will cost you about $125 with shipping.
    if not for you there is a is the Asrock 4core dual vista.that takes AGP or PCI E and supports ddr and ddr2 at Newegg,at little less than half the choices,but not bad choices.
  2. i cant really recommend a board but from personal experience i can tell you to NOT get this board from asrock.

    it works for basic stuff but the the overclocking is a little limited.
  3. I ordered an Asus board, will post once it arrives and I get it clocked.
  4. please do, i might get it if it works well for you.
  5. it seems the Asus P5PE-VM does not have very good overclocking capability at all ...

    Contrary to what I have read about it on this forum and other forums. I have even updated the bios thinking maybe it was an "update" that opens it up.

    If anyone has any suggestions, maybe I am stupidly missing an obvious program or screen to access overclocking, I would appreciate you posting here.
