Default do MOBOs for Intel LGA478 with PCI-e exist at all?

Well do they? Cuz i can't find any at my local stores. I want to upgrade to a PCIe GFX card but it seems i'll have to swap my P4 3Gig processor along with it too...

No, first of all SOkcet 478 is different then Socket T or LGA 775. And I doubt there are any socket 478 boards with PCIE.

looks like they're out there. Doubt it's good though. In your situation I wouldn't go this route.

Yeah i didn't look at it that close till after i posted. I agree, i wouldn't wish this board on my worst enemy, buuuut it does fit what he looking for. Probably would work in reality though. haha

At least you weren't looking for a micro atx socket 478 with a pci-e x16 slot.
