I don't think he means running a agp card along side a pci-e card in SLI. ;)

Maybe a SLI setup that has both an AGP and dual PCI-e slots that supports SLI? if so I have never heard of that.....

Such a product doesn't exist, nor will it. On the SLI boards I've seen, the two PCI-E slots only leave room for two or three regular PCIs. Plus, if such a product were to exist, the AGP slot would have to be a hacked implementation like it is on some Intel 915/25-based boards. This means performance with an AGP card would be extremely slow, as if it was a PCI card.

SLI takes the 16 pci-express lanes. There's be nothing left for AGP. (only 4 lanes would remain total, putting an AGP on that would take 2 lanes, no manufacturer would do that.)

AND you can't SLI 1 AGP card with a PCI-express card! Asking for an SLI between AGP and PCI-express is the best way to look dumb.

Wow, an AGP slot and PCIe on the same mobo. That is first one Ive see of that. Pretty nice. Wonder if they'll make one for AMD processors?

Yeah there are boards that support PCI-E and AGP but AGP peformance is horrible, something like 1x.

are you really that interested in super-****ty AGP performance???

I was un-aware of any AGP performance issues. Seems like good idea for those currently with AGP cards who may want to upgrade to PCIe in the future.

What's the best ECS motherboard with AGP, SLI and 10 ISA slots?
