Good Socket 939 Motherboard w/ AGP 8X

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
My roomate is looking for a new motherboard, as his just died yesterday (we think). Can anyone suggest a reasonably priced socket 939 motherboard with AGP 8X and can get a decent overclock? Thanks.

do a little research before you just cough out such responses, the Asrock is not a bad board, with a modded bios ppl have had in access of 400htt and it does support AM2 with the use of a add in daughter board.

Thanks alot for your responses, I now have a couple of boards to look at now with my roomate. We're going to check out which of these boards are easily available and then make a decision. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Added: What voltages can the asrock give the cpu and ram? I'm having a hard time finding this out.

Check in the AMD BIOS section, there is a Dual SATA BIOS info post
