yes...but you don't need to worry about it ...it's not transfering data fast enough to reach AGP 8x speeds

It will xfer data at 8x AGP without doubt but the GPU chipset on the mobo is very limited and will gain little if anything from 8x agp bandwidth.

I agree, they are not a serious gaming solution but fine for regular desktop app use and DVD's

hmm, i haven't heard much about these new Asus boards with the ATI video built-in. but the the last similar one i used had SiS video on board, and it would crash with a blue screen every time the control panel was opened...

i'd put the celly 2.6 cpu on an Asus P4P800S, and throw in a gf4 mx 440 w/8x agp. that will be a good folding machine too, as Northwood cellys fold at the same rate as P4 Northies, and just as stable, from my experience with them.
