Hey everyone. I'm trying to find a good motherboard that has 8x AGP. I've read good things about the VIA P4X333 but I haven't seen any any motherboards based on the chip. Is one coming out soon? Are there other motherboards that support 8x agp out? Will nForce2 based chips support Intel processors and if so when will that be out?

The more experienced users and I have come to a consensus that AGP 8X will probably not show any performance advantages for at least 2 years, do to the needs of graphics cards. AGP 4x provides only small performance increases over AGP 2x with current cards, and AGP 4x is already 4 years old!
