I just need help finding a semi- cheap motherboard with these specifications:
4 ram slots that is max DDR2 8gb
2 PCI E 2.0 slots
1 AGP 8x slot
Quad core CPU (Intell or AMD)
4 sata connectors
4 USB drive connectors
2 FireWire drive connectors
1 PCI
As small as possible

Thank you for the help!

agp dies out a long long time ago..most mb now use the built in cpu video and a pci-e video slot.
the smallest boards are the micro and mini atx boards..there are smaller ones but there mostly a cpu in a box for people want try running 3 party os on.

The best AGP card released was something like the ATI Radeon 3850 and was expensive and power hungry. I'm betting modern integrated (think AMD APU) graphics can run with whatever you're using. I don't think you'll find a board where AGP and PCIe co-exist (if they ever did) outside of eBay. Two FireWire ports? You might get a front and back but smorizio is right, you'll need to step it up on the size of the board. I think you need to make some sacrifices in your desired spec list. You're not one of those who likes to hold on to old hardware due to some emotional attachment, are you? We've all been there. We understand. But it may just be time to modernize a little. If you think you're saving money, you're not. Your specialized needs are nuking financial benefits. For example, DDR2 is out of major production and thus costs far more per GB than DDR3.

First, that was a very opinionated comment.
You don't know why I need the AGP slot.
I need it too use my ADC (Mac only display)
I am not going to buy an expensive adapter for that.
PCI E and AGP do co- exist on many motherboards.
I said as small as possible. That means I would prefer it to be small. I don't really care if the motherboard is 4 feet long.
I am 10, so I will admit I hold on to stuff more often than not.
But, DDR2 ram is the best ram I have, so you have to respect that.
I will not tolerate people being rude at me, when I was only asking for help.(nor do I want to be rude back)
