Aaaaaanyways back on topic, currently i've seen pentium boards go up to 3.2 GHz for AGP sets, but are there any boards that can go higher than that (pentium boards) and still be AGP? If not then I made the biggest mistake ever buying my AGP Radeon X850XT Platinum Edition video card... Please Alucard... Tell me it ain't true!

I'm not too crash hot on the types of pentium boards out there, but I know the Pentium4 chip currently is up to 3.8gig, so I wouldnt worry too much. To be fair you should be fine for a couple years at least with that setup. It really also depends how high your motherboard accepts. Usually some bios flashes will let them go higher then their originally listed cpus. Though I would recommend when you plan to switch motherboards, to go the AMD way. They're far better and cheaper for gaming. But AGP wont be dying out for a few years to come. Not everybody plans to buy 2 video cards to use in PCI-E format. So I doubt companies will stop it altogether. I also expect boards to come out sooner or later with both agp and pci-e slots. Or at the very least an adaptor to use with each.
