Here is a list:<br><br>
Okay that didn't work. They were all PCI-E, sorry... I try again.<br><br>
Personally I favor Asus or DFI Mobos, but Gigabyte is also good - I've only owned one of those.<br><br>
Here is a Gigabyte - Don't know anything about it though, maybe another member might know.... anyone?<br><br><a href="http://www.a1-electronics.net/AMD_Section/Mobos/939/Giga_K8NSNXP-939.shtml" target="_blank">http://www.a1-electronics.net/AMD_Se...SNXP-939.shtml</a><br><br>
IMHO this is only because you have NO $ to go PCI-E (is that true). This will cost you more later, but I understand what it is like being strapped <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I am using the 939dual-VSTA and think it is a great board. It has agp and pcie,<br>
when I got the board I had an agp card then got a pcie card, the board will support a 4 monitor surround setup, using agp and pcie together. The 4 monitor surround setup would be awsome for CAD work, I am an engineering tech and do CAD work also and need a 2 monitor setup so I don't us the agp anymore.

</div>ASROCK is the only MB that fits all your qualifications.<br />
I believe NewEgg has this MB for about $69.00.

I've seen the Dual Vista hit 350x6 in a review and was claimed to easily do that! It sure seems to have some potential.
