The only socket 478 PCI-E motherboards I know of are:
  • ASUS P4GPL-X
  • ASUS P4GD1
  • Albatron PX915P4C Pro
  • ASRock P4Dual-915GL.

The two ASUS board's listed above are almost impossible to find though. Might be an idea to have a look on ebay.

You're probably just going to have to get a 8x AGP board. I checked newegg for you and didn't see any 478 boards with PCI-E.

s478 is outdated bigtime already - if you're getting a new mobo, you might as well spend the cash on the new CPU and vid. card and upgrade to LGA775/PCI-E

Ya I cant find any m/b with a pci-e that also has a 478 cpu. Good news though is that you can still get a 6800 gt or ultra graphics card in agp and the 478 can be overclocked very well. A 3.0 and a 6800 gt will handle most games coming out in high to medium detail until at least the end of 2006 and most likely into 2007 until you might have to tune the settings down to low.

Here is a nice one here that supports DDR2 and PCI-E for the 478 socket : http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...=good+news+478
