    i think u need to go pci-e.. in theory your old X850 agp should fetch reasonable money.. decent agp cards are still expensive..

    If your not including the GPU then I dobut you will get $450 for that stuff. Might as well sell it all since you can get a x850xt(PCI-E) for about $170.

    I just finshed building a rig based on this MB. I am staying Agp for a while with my 9800 pro. Although the intallation wasnt that much of a problem as some ppl have cribbed about with this MB... it is not working at its optimal yet. I need to tinker with its bios to begin with. Best of luck to you. Oh by the way... this MB is the only soln as of now to our kind of dilemma.
