I have an AGP graphics card collecting dust in my closet that I never got around to using (needing). I'm wanting to build a system around it now seeing as it's an "end of era" piece of hardware. The ASUS A8V-X is probably the best mobo I could find to pair with my Sapphire HD 3850 512MB GDDR3 AGP card.

This board is probably the best one I can find as far as CPU, RAM and additional slot types go.

I really like the fact that it has PCI-e 1.0 slots so I can add new components to the board.

Does anyone else have recommendations as far as Mobos go?

I'm thinking a Athon fx-60 would make a nice running system for WinXP 32...


Thoughts?

P.S. would post links to the items but can't yet crying

Welcome to the motherboards.org..

Looks to me about the best board you can get for AGP and PCI-e slots... If you can on the CPU front go for an Opteron 180.. Dual core and runs at 2.4Ghz, very zippy. I revived a slow old system with one...
