I've had this one before... worked well for me...

virtually any s939 board is compatible with the X2 series. therefore if you can find an s939 board with AGP you have found your answer :D. HOWEVER, be warned that it may require a BIOS flash.

ii'm using one, Asus A8V Deluxe, that the fastest performing chipset I could get even out of PCI, thats y i went for AGP, even I built my system some 3 months ago. it may be difficult to find, but you have to look around, as I have to look for 23 shops to find this motherboard.

^^^^^^What do you mean it's the fastest chipset you could get, even better than PCI? Am I missing something? Since when is a VIA the fastest chipset for any CPU?

The absolute best mobo for S939 and AGP, IMHO, would be a DFI Lanparty nForce 3 mobo. You might need to flash the BIOS to get it to work with an X2, but that's no major biggie. If I'm not mistaken, P.P. Macguire used to have one...

Never buy the Asus A8V-MX I had a horrible experience with that board!

I have an ABit's compatible with all S939 series, even the FX-60 (though you need the newest BIOS for that).
