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 . 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...

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


Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870
