Anyone know if any motherboard companies make a board with all of the following:

1. 8x AGP
2. Rambu (gotta have my 1066 MHz ram)
3. Also gotta be socket 478 processor


if anyone knows of a board that has both, leave me a message please!

None, Intel's 850E only supports AGP 4x.

Grab a "Granite Bay" based board and forget RAMBUST as it is now dead in the water and history now. ;)

BTW I deleted the other thread on this same topic as only one thread is needed. : peace2:

Yep, and the E7205 is able to provide a much memory bandwidth as RAMBUS anyway.

With the added bonus of lower latencies as well. :)

Leading up to Xmas whatever stock is around will go quick and command a premium price so it would be best to wait till early next year to buy one and stocks will be more plentiful. I just pulled this from the Pricesearch Engine here though, http://tweaktown.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=671612/search=Granite%2520bay/ut=d31c60076e2c6561, so I'm sure that ya can find more around. ;)
