1. Which is better pci-e or agp?
2.what is a good pci-e?
3. I am building my own computer primarily for gaming, which one should I get?

Thanks, for #3 I meant either agp or pci-e and you answered that. I will get the best one my budget can buy. I was thinking agp was better than pci but I didn't know about the pci-e

if you're just now building a computer pci-e would be the only choice no matter your budget

if you have an already existing mobo with agp I'd suggest you get the 7800GS
Because people hate searching.
Best ram guide.
Different cpu types.
Good video card guide

Yeah, this will be a brand new mb.

I don't know about my budget, depends on how many yards I get this summer.
