The only AMD and Intels that could be interchangable in the same mobo was in like the PI and K6 era...but nothing newer.

A good cheap(er) mobo would be the Asus A8N nF4 ultra board, or one of the cheaper MSI's with NF4 chipsets. I don't know if I really trust the 939 Abit boards because I've just seen too many problems with them

Yes it is possible

But i would recomend against it. ECS made a board that takes both LGA775 and s939 CPUs via a daughterboard that contains its own memory slots.

The motherboard is feature rich but from what i have read the intel chips seem to work about average compared to other motherboards but the AMD side seems to be lacking wall below the rest of the pack. It might be possible for this to be fixed in the future via bios/firmware update. I still think it is a bad idea but here is a picture showing it with the daughterboard atached

I think that the fact that they did it earns ECS a lot of credit in making the effort to create a dual platform motherboard. Maybe they will figure out how to make it work propperly. And who is to say that in the future as technology stays the same for your southbridge and its components[PCI-E, Sound, Ethernet, USB , SATA, And PATA]. Maybe they will sell a base board that holds all those components and you can upgrade your daughterboard to new TECH. Saving you the time it takes to remove your motherboard and all your drives just to upgrade. Wow that is a really good idea. Think about it you want that new CPU that came out. You buy the cpu and the daughterboard and install it if you want to switch back you just swap the CPU slot.

Pretty cool stuff linkage

Aww man I totally forgot about that

It's a good idea, even has an adapter for Dothans, or at least there was one coming..but either way, it's kind of a slow board, with no overclocking options whatsoever.
