    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.

    there is?... I just looked up. you are right, but that is the first time i have heard of them. Also known as socket t. pretty rare if they don't sell them at newegg.

    wy2k6.. all the motherboards i found are for intel CPU's.

    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

    if it is still working properly, there is no real need to upgrade the motherboard.

    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.
