Default Thinking of buying a x1950 pro

I'm upgrading from a Radeon 9800pro and didn't think I was going to be able to find a new GFX card without upgrading everything but it turns out I might be able to get away with it. Basically I want an AGP card and I've read a fair amount of reviews saying this could be a good way to go.
Anyone have any experience of it? How does it run games like Oblivion etc?

Well the X1950PRO, is the best AGP card out right now. I have the PCI-e version, and it's great. Can play any game, I throw at it, at max settings.
