Default Upgrade what to do

If you had abuot 150 dollars to spend, and wanted to upgrade the computer in my sig, would you buy a 6600GT agp or wait 2 years to upgrade my mobo to pcie and upgrade my graphics card to whatever is around the 200 dollar range. i hope its the 6800GT would come down to 200 in 2 years.

so heres 1 suggestion

upgrade my video card to a 6600GT or maybe even a 6800GT but mostly 6600GT

2) wait 2 years upgrade the mobo to pcie and upgrade the graphics card (obviously) to something else.

what should i do.

EDIT: 3) i should upgrade something else


4) buy a really cheap pcie mobo and cheap pcie graphics card, then in 2 years coming can buy a new graphics card and may keep the cheap mobo

personally, i would buy a PCI-E Mobo beacuse AGP is kinda behind right now and PCI-E is faster so that's what i'd do. sell your old mobo and save up for a 6800GT or something.

im trying to sell my mobo and graphics card in the buy sale or trade section, i highly doubt anyone is going to buy it. right now im thinknig of a 6600GT or 6800GT and an msi k8n neo4 platinum nF4 ultra-D for about 90 bucks after rebate
or a DFI nF4 ultra-D for 130 with no rebate
