new board

  filthpig 11:00 21 Feb 2007

i am looking for a new board whicj has to be socket 775 and also AGP not PCI express
i know that PCI express is better but im not looking to upgrade until i get vista and directx 10 i would like the board to have more than 2 ram sockets and am looking to spend about £40=£60
any suggestions would be great thanks

There's plenty of s775 agp boards, but all have 2 x DDRII slots

There are a couple of hybrid boards with 2 x DDR and 2 x DDRII slots. Any use??

There's one here with the 4 slots as above and both AGP and PCI-express slots

(although Ebuyer are currently out of stock)

OK, I just read the pci-express slot is only 4x, not 16x, still it might be OK for you as an interim.

i suppose im just going to wait for vista and directx 10 coz im not going to upgrade just now as i have a decent video card and theres no point in shelling out for a good PCI express if it dont support directx 10
thanks for the advice anyway
