I thought that it was really cool that you could run either or both of them at the same time.

Yeah its cool but they are not as fast as the premiun boards from DFI or ASUS. Still if you can loose a litte and want to keep your AGP card then get one, it will last you a good long time.

true, i rather spend the money and go for something like this. socket 754 with a PCI-E bus. normally PCI-E sockets are 755 and 939, so people have to upgrade processors. this board i ordered is on its way and i plan to use it when the x1800's come out so i dont have to upgrade my already leet CPU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131533

I found this board cool because I had a dilema because I had a good vid card but it was AGP so I could upgrade my CPU and RAM and keep my AGP but run a dual 64 bit CPU.

You don't need to get a board with both to continue to run an AGP card. They still make s939 board that are dual-core capable with an AGP lot and no PCIe slot, don't they? If your not planning on upgrading your video card in the immidiate future this is probably the best option, as it will run slightly faster than an AGP/PCIe hybrid board, and will be much cheaper. If you do upgrade, you can always sell your AGP board and buy a new PCIe board.

The board is just as fast as Nforce boards. Toms Hardware is just being biased (as usual). Check other sites every other sites benchmarks are on par with the Nforce boards.

What grounds do you have to think that THG is biased? Ive been reading reviews on there for 4 years.
