Default AGP or PCI-E 4TW?

I've read a lot about this topic, and it seems to be a coin toss. I'm leaning more towards PCI-E, because I think thats the way things will start to go, but I don't want to get stuck with dead-end tech again (anyone remeber rambus ram).

I would like to put together a new pc here soon, but I think I may wait to see how PCI-E and SLI goes for a few months. Man its gonna be hard to wait

I went with PCI-e. There are still a ton of good AGP cards out there, but PCIe is the future. Hop on the bandwagon.

-eVga 6600GT (PCIe)
-Mushkin Dual Pack PC3200 (512 X2)

For the extra money, getting a DFI Lanparty for PCI-E is the best thing I think now. Or even a different mobo...

Ah thanks for the replys. I have a good feeling PCI-E will become better and better, so I will probably go with a mobo with that. I would also like to say this is one very informative site. You guys really seem to know your stuff

PCI E is the way to go right now. I went for it possibly a little to early (end of summer 2004), by the technology must have matured to the point where there are few reasons to avoid it and many (particurally the furure compatability issue) that herald it's advantages.

AGP won\'t fit in PCI-E... unless you use a really good hammer. ~Trotter
