Default MB/CPU upgradeing.

I'm going upgrade my CPU but my mb's (Socket 478) is kinda outdated.

Most of the new MB's I see have 240pin ddr2 ram slots.
So I take it only ddr2 240pin ram stick works? Or can I use my 184 pin ddr sticks with it?

Is their mb's with both APG and PCI Express slots? Or can they only have one or the other?

Also if someones sees a nice mb/cpu socket 775 combo with (Perfur ddr) +2 slot ram it'd be nice if they posted it.

yes there are motheboards that have agp and pci-e, but they are usually on crappy low end motherboards.
