1. PCI and AGP are 2 totally different slots.

2. Dunno

3. More power to render graphics hense smoother game play at high resolutions. Totally unnecessary IMO. 6800GT is enough.

Yes it can. As long as your PC has regular PCI slots, you can put a PCI card in there.

I'd like to add though, PCI isn't as good as AGP, and AGP isn't as good as PCI-E, these are all different slots all together. PCI doesn't support too many great cards, I think the best PCI vid card you can find is a FX5500 I think
