    If you're dead set on having an AGP board then you'll need to look at any of the boards based on the VIA K8T800 or the nVidia nForce3 chipsets. MSI is one of the better boards in that realm and will have all your other needs natively supported (as any of the boards in this area would).

    MSI is probably your best choice. The K8N Neo2-F looks pretty good for the money. The K8N Neo2 Platium is just about the best overclocking board for AGP socket 939, but other than that I can't see any reason to get it over the Neo2-F.

    MSI K8N NEO2 PLATINUM is simply an awesome board, especially for overclocking. I get excellent results and am getting higher scores on most benchmarks than any other NF3 motherboard for the 939 (with AGP of course). I am setting up a DFI NF3 board to do some direct comparisons, but still expect the MSI to come out on top.
