Looking for a motherboard

a friend of mine gave me an old AMD64 3000 socket 939 CPU.  I'm using it to upgrade Jrayke's computer since she's using a reallllllly old Celeron processor.  But her video card is AGP.  Can anyone recommend a motherboard that is socket 939 that still uses AGP?  I can't find any on Newegg.  I have a spare PCI-E X600 somewhere so if I can find it then she'll just get a PCI-E mobo but I'm hoping to find an AGP one first.

the only motherboards that have AGP and support new cpu chipsets at the same time are made by cheaper mobo brands like ECS. You're pretty much taking a gamble with this. Some have luck with them, while others (myself) won't be as lucky and end up with extra hardware that won't be compatible with newer stuff. My desktop is dead because of it. Now i have a core2duo, and an agp card. A combination that doesn't work with new motherboards made by more respectable brands.

So yeah, if you do find that cheap ass motherboard to suit your needs, it will be a gamble. If it fails, you're going to end up upgrading everything, or keep trying. Which at some point, you'll come to realize, as I have, that building a computer is not worth the trouble anymore these days. Buy a dell for 600-900 bux and be done with it, imo.

Re: Looking for a motherboard

yeah....if only i had 600 to 900 bucks to spare for a computer.  believe me, if i had the cash for a new comp i would be more than happy to get one.  If i had a spare PCI-E video card, it'd be so much easier.  But, again...money is the limiting issue here.  I found an ASUS A8V-E Deluxe 939 AGP board for $60.  So we shall see.

Re: Looking for a motherboard

hopefully i can find my spare PCI-E Radeon X600.  it'd make life so much easier since the mobo's are more prolific.  plus soph's gonna turn the old computer into a file/print server for us.  that way i can steal my roommate's pr0n.

Maybe the knife that Jrayke is going to use on Dracus (little Dracus?) if he loads pr0n?
