Yes, you read correctly, an Intel Socket 478 motherboard that supports DDR2 Ram and PCI-Ex. This is just one bizarre Intel Socket 478 motherboard if i hadn't seen one.

Yeah sounds like a good replacement for my failing BioStar P4M80-M4. I'd go for it if I could use the 2GB SDRAM I just bought.

One more strange item on this Board, there is only one type of RAM available according to Crucial. No backwards compatibility. At least it still supports IDE devices. The price is definitely right.

There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.

I personally really don't see a reason to upgrade to this board, unless it's for the sake of novelty purposes. I mean, it really can't take advantage of higher clocked ram like DDR2 533/667 in the firat place or a decent PCI-Ex modern graphics cards. Even the fastest Socket 478 Pentuim 4 EE processor would really start to bottleneck on any decent Nivida or ATI PCI-Ex modern graphics card.
