    Asus no longer makes that motherboard.

    The albatron p4cpro is the best socket 478 pci-e x16 motherboard out there, im running a 3.2E prescott with a bfg tech 7800 gtx 256 mb or a ati radeon x1800xtpe here's a picture of that board out of the case .

    http://www.albatron.com.tw/english/it/mb/specification.asp?pro_id=160

    newegg.com usually has that board in stock.

    BTW i got my 3.2E to 3.8 ghz with 2gb crucial pc4000 nuff said board rocks lol.

    i wish they made a sli board for socket 478 procs :(

    I wish there were more s478 pci-e x16 motherboards out there, but the albatron is the only 478 board with pci-e readily avaliable.People think albatron is like a low end maker , but they are actually a great company and this motherboard overclocks better than my abit ic-7G max3! 3 companies from what i know make pci-e x16 s478 motherboards thats asus asrock and albatron the asus and the asrock both suck the albatron px915p4cpro only good s478 pcie board.asrock is a subdivision of asus cheapy crap they suck asus suck also lol.

    Hey, I also need a P4 478 Socket PCI-X MOBO. The internet turns up no results for any of the boards posted. If you gave me link maybe, preferably in the U.K, seeing as thats where I am. Thanks. (Oh wait, I only have a Micro ATX case, dont blame me though, blame Dell for making crappy computers with the cheapest parts they can find)

    if you can find any board with socket 478 and pci-e youll be lucky. probably cheaper to buy the board and a new case still then the rest of the comp

    Well I will buy a new case if need be, I have found 1 PCI-X 478 Board, but they are never selling it, they are all just product specs.

    Well I just found one, but its about the same price as a new processor anyway, so unless i find one for around £60, I think I'll just leave it

    Well, I have here an ECS RS400-A motherboard with AGP-X(Which im told works with standard AGP 8X) and PCI-X x16 and I think 2 PCI slots, but it only takes a 775 socket processor, so im really pissed off. I desperately want to use a PCI-X card with my P4 478 2.8GHz Processor. The future looks grim.
