I am looking to upgrade my HTPC but I have a nice Radeon X800 PE AGP, is there any motherboards out there that support AGP and dual core, it can be either INTEL or AMD.

thanks

All of the recent AMD A64 boards are dual core capable with the most recent bios. I am using a Soltek board with a GF 6800 AGP.

elm_sd,

I am presently using an Asus A8V Deluxe with an Athlon 64 3500 and an ATI X800XL AGP video card and it works well. Plan on upgrading to an X2 processor when prices come down and HTPC s/w that uses dual processors becomes available. The A8V Deluxe will probably be the last Asus 939 motherboard with an AGP card slot. Therefore, I am also considering the Asus A8N-E that uses the Nvida chipset and has a PCI-E graphics card slot. The PCI-E version of the ATI X800XL is only $268 from mwave.com.
Regards,
TCIII

If you are going to send someone to save the world, you better make sure they like it the way it is.

Severan nForce 3 AMD board support Dual Core. I know the latest version of the Shuttle SN95 supports the x2 processors - but that is an entire machine, not a board.

i have an epox socket 939 with agp (nforce 3 chipset) a BETA bios appeard in the last few weeks, on the EPOX site, for dual core X2 support (amd64) YMMV as I have not got an X2 CPU to test with (yet!).
