    The ASRock 939Dual-SATA2. The reason why I want this board is that :

    1. I just bought a BFG 6600GT AGP :duh: Bad Choice.
    2. I've decided to upgrade to 64bit.

    I've read so many reviews on this board, and some are good, and some are bad. I can't really decide what to get. :waah:

    Anyways, Is there a socket 939 motherboard that has both PCI-Express and AGP 8x on it?

    asrock are generally known as a cheap mobo manufacturer... though some are happy with their stuff and some aren't... it depends a lot more about what are you going to use it for... and belive it or not Asrock has a board with both pci-e and agp(the only manufacturer?)... but I've seen a few nice reviews about it... one coming from bit-tech (if memory server right)

    Yeah ive always had good luck with ASrock boards, mostly socket a tho. They overclock well and run rock solid. If I remeber correctly ASRock boards are made by ASUS, infact im almost sure of it.

    That looks like a nice board, too bad you have that agp card as the a8n-sli flies :D

    It has a expansion slot, which you have to buy the card for. Anyways, this is solid for gaming right? :D

    You're exactly right. ASRock is the name Asus puts on it's crazy/cheap lower-end stuff. Haven't heard many complaints about the quality, just the obvious limitations.
