Mainboard advice for s939,agp,Athlon64X2
Hi, before running into trouble, i want to ask the freaks.

I want to upgrade my system, to an Athlon64X2 cpu.
But i want to hold my AGP nvidia6800board.

So witch Mainbaord is the best for Linux.
Supporting : Athlon64X2 and AGP ?

My choise was an Asus A8V-Deluxe Mainbaord, but noone can confirm, that the Board support dual core cpus.

Some advice ?

You should check out the Gigabyte K8NS Ultra-939 too.
That supports dual core with the F7 or higher bios. Also I had no problems with getting all the onboard (audio, dual GB-LAN, firewire, etc) running with 2.6.8+ kernels. It's AGP as well. I wasn't ready to give up my 6800GT yet ;).

I just checked out the cpu support list for that A8V Deluxe.
It supports dual cores (in bios 1013 and 1014).

I used to use the board(had it with a 5900 Ultra) and it does support the X2, you just need to make sure you have the latest BIOS update. Great motherboard, I would highly suggest it. Just know that AGP is dead, future cards are going to be PCI-X.

The A8V-E Deluxe (PCIe) does not support X2s.

The A8V-E SE (PCIe, not deluxe) does, as does the A8V deluxe (AGP).

Likely you already bought a new motherboard but if you still need one a good alternative would be a ALI M1695 chipset. Motherboards with this chipset support BOTH AGP and PCI-Express. Various big vendors sell boards with these chips.
