Why would you ever get an AGP video card if you can get PCI-E?

Also just get some value select RAM or something.

These DFI motherboards are good.

they're right aboutnot needing the AGP port. If you buy a 6800gs, then you are already on a card that meets the best card you'll be able to purchase for the AGP slot.So in conclusion, if you ever use your agp slot, you'll be downgrading.

*Starts to get annoyed* Can you guys please drop the thing about the AGP and PCI-E?? I'm getting a motherboard with only PCI-E and that's all.

As for the links on the RAM and Mobo, it's from Newegg and does Canada have anything to do with it? NO. Please everyone no more newegg because it doesn't sell to Canada (I wish it did).

I made the list of part's I'm getting from a Canadian store (Directiger.ca) and the price is way higher then I want:

--$202 for AMD CPU 3000+ (socket 939)
--$114 for Corsair Value Select Dual Channel 1024MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz Memory ( 2 x 512MB ) (DDR SDRAM DIMM)
--$67 For Ultra / V-Series / 500-Watt / ATX / 120mm Fan / 20/24-Pin / SATA Ready / Power Supply
--$259 For Geforce 6800 GS eVGA video card
--$157 For Asus A8N-E nForce4 Socket 939 ATX Motherboard / Audio / PCI Express / Gigabit LAN / USB 2.0 / Serial ATA / RAID

Total is $799 Canadian. What the ****, to much lol. Even though it's under my top limit ($860) it's too high because I need to make one of those parts better. Also what about Shipping and handling?

Yes I did say I was from Canada right in the first post! All to often I find people giving me USA stores to buy my parts from when I live in Canada. They don't have to help but wouldn't it be nice if they did? I help other people with problems on different forums. Thank you for helping me BGS.

Can we start talking about my new computer now? I still have some problems on the other page.

Well Since I have not got anything off the Internet yet, is there Taxs (normal) on computer parts? If so then that sucks. Also can anyone answer the questions on the last page thanks!
