I'm looking to eventually upgrade my entire comp. within the next month or so, once i save up enough money

problem is i really, really want to play battlefield 2 right now, since ive been playing the battlefield line of games for a long time now, but my current graphics card isnt supported by the game.

i figured i could go out and get a new agp card and just use that in my system for the time being, but i dont want to spend money on something if i cant find a nice mobo once i eventually build my machine.

the machine im putting together is most likely going to either be an athlon 64 3800+ or a new FX55, i havent decided yet.

do they even make a decent mb with agp that will support these cards? i was originally planning for pci-e, but that might not be happening now.

no dont even consider buying a new agp board as you will have to scrap it if you want a new gfx card they have stopped making AGP cards. My advice get a cheap 5 series card for your old pc and just build your new one as planned at least you will have two decent pcs you can always flog the old one later.
