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

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

Yeah, this will be a brand new mb.

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