I cant think of too many AGP based motherboards that can have a processor that won't be a bottleneck to that beast.

Any sk939 nForce3 mobo can have a FX60... so let's say you already have a 3700SD @3GHz on a DFI nF3 mobo... why on earth yould you want to change the mobo? Maybe if with the mobo you change the CPU and get a DC, the ram and get AM2, but then again for the most nF3 (or K8T880 pro) that already have a good CPU this upgrade isn't quite necesary.

Sorry if I was ruff or anything, but as long as with a 7300GT AGP I can go to almost 57k in AM3 and PCIexpress 2.0 is bound to come in a couple of months why bother with PCIe? It's the same as that thing:
-First guy: What kind of memory do you think I should put on my X2 setup?
-Answear: Dude, get a conroe, it's sooo much better
-First guy: But I just want a memory advice
-Answear: But the C2D OCs so much better and pwnz the X2

Wow that's very surprising.

I wonder if they're going to chunk AGP in DX10.

AGP is still very capable, 4x & 8x aren't even fully utilized.

Yea it's mostly bandwidth.

PCIe was mostly (if not all) for SLi and less connectors from the PSU.

but isnt the 6pin an additional PSU connector?

but I agree, what this is possibly a AMD/ATI move to slow the C2D swich, becuase that card is a beast

how much more money would it be to buy a 75$ motherboard and the PCIe card

id rather just do that so what the hells the point?

The X1650 is crap in comparison to the X1950 from what I gather. AGP is still not fully Utilized, the 2.1 GB/s bandwidth it offers is still not fully utilized by the best AGP card on the current market. I believe the best on the market right now is the 7900 GS, seeing as how ATi doesn't have a better AGP card to offer (Again, only a guess coming from previous knowledge).

Will i be able to run the X1950 on a northwood P4 2.8ghz hyper-threading,Asus P4P800-E Deluxe with 1280MB Ram????
