motherboard with agp and pci-express support for pentium D?

hey guys. This might be wishful thinking, but i wanted to see if anyone knows of a board on the 945 or 955x chipset with both agp and pci-express support. I want something thats forward compatible but i dont want to have to throw away my geforce 6800gt to cross over to a new pentium d processor.

You're probably SOL. The i945 chipset is too 'new' to be backwards compatible, as far as I can tell. There are SIS chipsetted m'boards from www.ecs.com.tw that sorta fit the bill, but asking for an AGP slot with a board that sports the i925 melange seems iimpossible.

OTOH, a i915 m'board from ECS might be A-OK. They made an unusual motherboard that handled DDR2/DDR and PCI 16X/AGP. Not simultaneously, of course.

BTW , y dont u check out www.Asrock.com ?

They have some combo´s mobo´s with pci/Agp ... They call it AGIX to that port.
altought the board supports two kinds/generations of cards , i dont think its a good idea to plant a pci-X vid card there .. cos the port only works at 4X , they found someway to put together 4 pci SLOTS in order to perform that , but that dont count if u plan to keep your AGP card... Sweep it out and do some research for reviews ...
