Default new mobo for 754 AND 939

haha, this looks interesting . . .

its a motherboard for amd that supports socket 754 AND 939 ( of course, you can only use one cpu at a time )

its for people who would upgrade from 754 to 939

it supports dual channel and pci express (only x1, not x16 - it has an agp port)

i just thought it to be interesting

Board has a lot of options on it but I'm sure that is at the cost of quality.

what about vid cards though...what's the point of having pci-e if the vid cards aren't even going to be out for it yet, by the way when are a good selection of pci-e cards going to be out, will it be expensive and will agp cards go down?
