Motherboard support AGP + Pci-e?
Is there any motherboards out there that support both AGP and Pci-e? The reason im asking this is because I am going to upgrade my system but don't have the cash to fork out for a new graphics card, motherboard, cpu all at once, since im still running on the old school AGP system. Therefore to buy decent quality I was thinking of buying the motherboard and CPU in one hit and then about a month to 3 weeks later buying a gfx card, ie ATI 1900XT or something.
However if I wasn't going to do this I would be buying a budget card like a 7600GT and wouldn't last very long with the current updating of games etc.
I would prefer a well known brand such as Gigabyte, Asus etc, but if a no name brand is all that's out there then so be it. After all as long as it supports dual channel ddr, pci-e, agp, sata hdd, firewire and all the usual bits and pieces it will serve my needs. In my opinion the motherboard doesn't add that much to the gaming experience, rather just what runs off it.
