Default Board with PCI-X

Anyone know of a cheap one?
Preferably one around $100.

If it's real old, preferably something where I can still get CPUs.
I'm hoping for LGA775, but I doubt I'll hit my price point.


EDIT: Depending on the CPU I'd be willing to go to $150.

EDIT2: This isn't a WTB, I'm more looking for a model number I could buy somewhere else.

There are plenty of boards out there in pci-e socket 775 from many manufacturers for under $100. Most matx boards fall within your price range as well as a few atx boards. They probably won't be super oc'ers, but what can you expect for the price? I had an Asus P5KPL-CM a few months ago. I paid about $75 for it.

Oops. Well in that case, I doubt you will find such a board in that price range. Your best bet is to keep an eye on ebay or other auction type sites. The Asus P5Q WS is available but more than twice your budget price. You might get lucky and find one in the $150-$200 range.

I'm squeezing new life into my old 200GB IDEs using a 3ware 16 channel RAID.

Sadly... it's PCI-X.


I can find a few new boards that have it, but I don't wanna spend $300 plus the cost of a new generation CPU.

I'm already spending $500 on a case.

what about looking into mac hardware? Im pretty sure they used 775 socket with the C2D series, and you can still run windows on it. But then you are probably looking at spending a pretty penny on a 775 mac board.

D_H I think the cheapest board with PCI-X is going to be the Asus P5Q WS board. Looks like the cheapest is $229 at Onhop

I'm more looking for EOLed boards.

Even $150 is pushing my budget.

You know that PCI-X is backwards compatible with PCI slots eh? They'll just run at the max bandwidth PCI will allow (133MB/s).
