AGP/PCI-E mobo

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Needing to upgrade motherboard to upgrade to sata and scsi. Problem is i can't afford to go PCI-E for graphics just yet so want need a board that can handle AGP 8x and PCI-E x16 so i can upgrade graphics at later date.

Can't find many boards that can do that. Here's a couple i found with only 1 PCI-E x1 slot.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131518 for ASUS K8S-MX Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131558 for ASUS A8V-MX Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813153036 for JetWay 754GT-P-EC ATX AMD Motherboard. Says AGPC, would that be 8x ?

I think your best bet would be to sell your cpu,mobo, and gpx card and buy some 939 pci-e since everything is going that route anyhow. I parted out my old HP media center m270n and 6800 gt and was able to buy everything in my sig with that money from newegg...of course I did reuse the ram and disc drives though
