View Full Version : A7N8X Deluxe + IGP?
Does anyone know if Asus has any plans to bring out an IGP version of A7N8X Deluxe? I desperately desire a motherboard with dual VGA-outs, yet no one seems to be providing one. Yes, I do run dual monitor.
This question also can be read as: does anyone know of any mobo manufacturers planning on releasing any nForce2 mobos with dual LAN and dual VGA?
Yes but there currently no word on when it will be out. HOwever i an't sure about dual VGA ports, but i think it's doubtful :o

the epox 8rga+ is out. it does have dual vga ports onboard
Does it? never noticed as i don't like intergrated video. I myself would go with the EPoX if you need it ASAP.
Indeed, I just noticed that the new Epox board has two VGA-outs. Very nice :).
The problem I'm having is that I run Linux, and the nForce2 has problematic support for it. More specifically, I cannot run a non-nVidia card on it due to the AGP implementation right now, and the Firewire is slightly busted. I'm not sure if I want to lock myself in like that - what if ATI comes out with something amazing that I want, or I need to use an IEEE-1394 peripheral?
At this point, I'm leaning towards a KT400A board, perhaps the AT7-MAX3 whenever it comes out, and just outfitting it with a separate video card (probably a GFFX 5200 and WinTV Go). I was never a huge fan of VIA, but I can put up with them if need be. Dual channel is not all that important if I'm not using the onboard graphics, right? :)

Any reason why You could not use both an AGP and PCI card?.
