Hi

i'm looking for a motherboard that matches my system specs, i couldn't find a motherboard from any UK based shop or website. here are the specs:

Socket LGA 775
DDR2 240 pin Ram
AGP 8x slot

i know there are very few motherboards that meet the specifications, and i already found an ECS one, but it turned out to be a horrible one. so please help if you found such a motherboard.

thank u

Is this an AMD or Intel board?
I doubt you are going to find a board that supports DDR2 and AGP

ASRock... This has 2 slots for DDR, and 2 for DDR2. It also has AGP 8X, and a PCIE x16. never seen anything like it.

If you can't find a board that has DDR2 and AGP, you may as well buy new ram also.

i had the same problem, just that the most the mobos wouldnt support my CPU,
my advice, ditch the AGP 8x
and get and intel GCL945 mobo
i like mine very much,
just go on amazon.co.uk and find it

Why not just break down and buy a pci-express card, they are incredibly better graphics than agp, and that will get you away from awful boards with sub standard Via chipsets.
