Its got the Nforce4 chipset.

And for an agp board go with the av8 by abit. Both awesome overclockers.

definatly go with PCI-Express. Its newer and faster than AGP. Go with any nForce 4 based mobo. Some brands to consider are Abit, Asus, GigaByte, DFI

I have an nforce 4 ultra made by MSI, and its pretty sweet. The only thing about it is that it cant run 4 double sided RAM chips together. Its 4 single sided or 2 2/4 sided

Actually PCI-E is much faster than AGP.

PCI-E = 4.0 GB/sec
AGP = 2.1 GB/sec
