    that website is for the 815efv (which has AGP and some other things)
    i have the efvu (which has no AGP)...
    btw i didnt buy the motherboard by itself...its part of a gateway someone gave me

    why not spend like 150 bucks or so and get a new mobo and proc that will be in the 2.6ghz rage? barton chips are dirt cheap, and a mobo that will work for you will be like 60 bucks. do eeet.

    It's the right page, you should have read on further

    http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d815efv/sb/CS-013103.htm

    Intel® Desktop Board D815EFV/D815EPFV
    What Does the "U" Mean in the Intel(R) Desktop Board D815EFVLU Product Code?

    Intel is introducing a new configuration of the Intel® Desktop Board D815EPFV/D815EFV. The board provides support for both the Pentium® III processors and Intel® Celeron® processors manufactured in the 0.18-micron technology, in the 370-pin FC-PGA package. This board will support future Pentium III Processors manufactured in the 0.13-micron technology, in the 370-pin FC-PGA package.

    To determine if you have a Universal board that is capable of supporting the processors mentioned above, check to see if the letter "U" is silk-screened on the desktop board next to the board name. Or if you have a boxed product, check to see if the letter "U" ends the boxed product code.
