Default Mobo Q.

Asus K8T800Pro or ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 (PCI-E and AGP)?

I've got an AGP card currently (BFG 6600GT OC) but I might want to upgrade to PCI-E eventually. generally with me tho, I tend to buy something then wait 3 years to update. so next time I want to upgrade I'll probably buy a new mobo because of socket tech.

with this in mind, which is more worthwhile?

the 2000mhZ (vs 1000) FSB of the K8T800Pro
OR
the PCI-E and AGP capability of the ASRock 939Dual-SATA2?

I have a 6600GT-OC, I can't afford a new card and a new mobo and the CPU i want. and the ASRock board says it will be able to upgrade to be Socket M2 capable with a daughter board, which sounds cool.

just bought the videocard, im not a super hardcore gamer. it was over $100 dollars cheaper where I got it than at NCIX, so it was a good deal.
