Is this a good motherboard? I want a motherboard that is fairly
future-proof and I can upgrade and will last me perhaps 2 - 3 years... so
any ppl think this one sounds ok?
Also, I will get AMD Athalon 64 3000+ ... again is this a failry ok chip?
I dont use heavily intesive apps. but these specs seem to be entry level.

Will my current nVidia G Force 4 64mb DDR graphics card work on this
motherboard? The graphics card says it requires 2x / 4x AGP, but I know
themotherbaord is AGP 8x... is 8x downward compatible or not?

Thanks!!!!!!

Socket 754 will be on it's way out soon. Socket 939 is the way to go.
All 8x AGP slots are 2x and 4x compatible.

I built one for a neighbor and its a popular board. AMD bundled it
with the 3200. It did work with his old 64 bit graphics which I used
to power up the system with , hes using a 6800 GT now.

Sure you can use it for a while but future-proof is a subjective
thing. All systems are going to look pretty dang old in about 1.5
years.and it depends on what happens in the furture obviously - some
things may pop up which we cant predict that may totally make your
system out of date. One thing BTX. If everyone suddenly switches to
BTX in the next few years or some other thing like that --- it could
make your system more out of it than we imagine.

Right now --- the PCI express boards uh ... should be out any day now.
They were predicted to come out by VIA at the end of Sept , then Oct,
Still no word so its hard to say but they should be out between now
and Dec probably, Nvidia is also supposed to come out with their new
boards with PCI express for the AMDs. So in that sense -- itll be out
of date a bit right away. Second the 754 socket itself may become more
and more out of it -- the next two years since 939 is falling in price
and thats going to be AMDs mainstream socket.

In performance terms -- sure youll be able to use your system for
quite a while. The 754 socket and ATX and AGP wont disappear -
hopefully. No ones predicting it. Of couse just how out of it itll
seem -- no one knows. You can still get some PCI graphics cards
obviously but they seem ancient.
