    My brother gives me a call and tells me you've got to see this mobo on ebay!
    It Asrock Asus P4Twins-HDTV socket 478 DDRI/II. Features are Ati Radeon Xpress 200 northbridge, ULi 1573 southbridge, 1 Pci-e x 16 , 2 ddrI ,and 2 ddrII dimm slots. Check the link below for the rest of the specs. As you can see from my system specs I'm still running a 478, even that the fact that it an asrock mobo didn't stop me (I had 1 B4) from grabbing it. This board gives me uprade options that I never expected. Once I've upgraded my gpu to pci-e, and my memory to ddrII then I'll change Platforms (AM2 probably).I diddn't notice any posts about this mobo, anybody have any info? Even opinions on the chipset would be cool!!:D

    ehh i dunno it don't sound like a good idea and prob will suck performance wize because of all the special shit they had to do to make all of that work together

    Just the fact that its ASRock would put me off and wouldnt a really good PCI-E card be choked by a skt 478 CPU anyway?

    I know that I,m Probably taking a big hit performance wise, I'm just tired of waiting can't afford to upgrade everthing at once.This way I can use what I have now, then I'll grab a good pair of DDR II and ASAP a top PCI-e card. I want to go crossfire or sli anyway so I'll have this in mind the whole time. Besides this way it gives me something to do but wait!!
