Default AGP dilema

Hello

As the title suggests i have an issue with an AGP graphics card. The card works wonders, the issue is that the mother board is rather old, as is the cpu and ram.
Does anyone knows of a recent motherboard, something that can run at least a Core 2 duo or an AMD equivilent and take an AGP Card?

Nick

Try an Asrock board; not sure which one to be honest.. someone else may know specifically. But honestly; just upgrade the video card :) You can get a super cheapo PCIe that if you're fine on an AGP you'll be fine with the PCIe.

Yeah for as low as 30$ you could get something to outperform the agp card. If you are considering new mobo, even integrated graphics might beat an agp card (depending what it is). My old ATI 9700 pro couldn't play oblivion like the radeon 3200 on my MB.

I agree with others, go with a mobo with integrated if you do not want to purchase a new GPU yet. The higher end integrated GPUs will possibly be better than your AGP card.
