    Nope, no PCIe for the old Athlon, and they're not platform compatible with the new ones either.

    There is an "upgradable" board from ASRock though, start out with Socket-A and buy an upgrade card later that brings you socket-754. Stupid solution though, since the upgrade card costs more than a new mainboard.

    Seems you need to make up your mind, and either make the jump or not.
