Well, they are all right. AGP is going to be around still for a little while, but fewer motherboards will have AGP, so it won't be too long.

I would just go with the xfx 6800gs, my friend has it, its way cheaper than the 6800gt unless something changed. It is overclocked and runs faster than the 6800gt .. i cant remember if its only pci-e tho :/

Anyway agp and pci-e have about a 1-2 fps difference at this point, so pci-e u cant really justify upgrading unless u already need a new motherboard.

Read some reviews/benchmarks.. they tell the stories
