Well, as you have games as one of the uses of your PC id suggest an AMD.

Yeah, but there is only one, I think it is made by Foxconn. I would get the PCIE card though and sell your AGP one if you want to.

AMD is just a different brand of processor, it still runs on the same principles, if you plan on building or upgrading soon just tell us your budget and we can tell you what to get, i would really reccomend getting a solely pci-e motherboard however, as no reliable manufacturers have come out with a good agp&pci-e board
