    hey i was just wondering what is the percentage of performance drop when using a motherboard that has a dedicated agp slot from the southbridge versus the normal dedicated agp slot coming from the northbridge?

    Via the southbridge would basically be a PCI slot. I'd say the drop is very much noticable. (2GB/s vs 133MB/s)

    well, on the 939Dual-SATA2 board, the AGP is from the southbridge and the drop isnt very noticable (2-3%)
