fry's deal: core2 duo and AGP mobo, $199
Oct 28, 2006

too good of a deal for me to resist while not in the market for a new system, I saw that this supports the core2 chip AND also agp. I've been saying how much of a fan I am of the matrox agp card (p650) and this seems my ONLY chance to try for keeping my old ram (perfectly fine) and vid card - but also getting into the core2 chip.

bay area frys has this - I know sunnyvale has it since I just bought the combo there. they mark the mobo as $39.99 and the RETAIL boxed chip/fan as $159.99 (e6400 core2).

here's the link to the ad:

I will test this with the matrox and report back. I have a 50/50 feeling that it won't work - the matrox cards are not even mentioned in the compat list for this chipset. it talks ONLY about ati and nvidia (sigh). but I'll give it a shot and see if good old matrox agp can be given new life again
