Cool AGP cards

My board only supports AGP. I'm not ready to updrade to a board with PCI express. What are the best cards out there for the buck for AGP? What cards are best.... ATI or GeForce?

Hwo many times do i have to say that the 6800GS is ONLY GOING TO BE PCI-E??? The 7800GS will come out in february and ONLY be AGP for the AGP users. K thanx. If your going to pay 300 on a video card then you might as well find a 6800GT.
