Excuse my lack of knowledge, but what is SATA, AGP, and PCI. Why is one better than the other?

Aren't PCI like slots you put things into? I dunno....

SATA is faster than IDE, PCI is faster than AGP

Thanks for the quick responses. Very helpful and I really appreciate it. I read th basic description on those three things, but I dunno it still confuses me. A motherboard could have SATA, PCI, and AGP, coudln't it? They all seem to have diffferent functions, or can a mobo only have one?

Thanks very much,

Kyle
