Default Best of the AGP's?

Is the ATI Radeon X1600PRO 512MB the best AGP card for gaming? Also, are they going to stop making AGP cards? Will this be one of the last!? I figure if it is I might as well just go all the way with this upgrade a buy the best AGP I can.



Also is there anyway that a bored could accept a PCI card and an agp card.

you are really confusing me, If I were you I wouldnt waste my money on that AGP crap and get a new mobo that supports pci-E and a new gfx card.

Here's the 7800 GS, better than the 7600GS.
Is your asking about a PCI and not a PCI-E card, then yes, a computer can handle a pci and agp card if your wanting to run dual monitors
