    Find someone with a very good AGP card who just upgraded and most likely won't have anywhere to use it on this new board(haven't had one on my last 8 builds) then talk him/her out of it cheap or trade. There are some good AGP's out there and that will leave your PCI's open for more goodies(insert imagination here)JMO
