That little itty bitty chip on the graphics card converts the PCIe and AGP signals to the other.... Something like that. It gets rather hot on my card, and only the AGP based 6600GT has that chip. The PCIe based cards do not have it because it was orignaly made for the PCIe bus. THATS WHAT I THINK!!!! Not exactly sure lol

They haven't maxed out the AGP bus as far as I know. Besides i'm sure most peoples CPU would limit them....
