slightly. It's very close.
the 8600 GTS has a more significant lead than the 8600 GT though (but costs a lot more)

but the 3650 is better value, and uses less power.

Both are used for adding a video card into your rig

AGP is a little slower than a PCI-E (due to less bandwidth)

but don't take it that AGP is always slower than PCI-e

the HD3850 the fastest card out for AGP is still faster than any of the PCI-e Cards posted by you me or Apokalipse in this thread (not that I'm recommending it, its double your budget)

thnx buddy..
well wats the difference btw an agp card and a pcie card..?
AGP 8X has about 2.2GB/S bandwith, while PCI-E 16X has about 16GB/S bandwith

However, the 8800 GTX's and Ultra's don't really need much more than about 3GB/S, and they're about 3-3.5 times as fast as a 3650

the FX5200 is worse than my old Radeon 9250 in performance, even though its DX10

but thats really not even an option since he has PCI-e ports and the HD3650 would blow the FX5200 to pieces

Actually, Geforce FX series are DirectX 9.0b compatible
but they did kinda flop compared to ATI's 9000 series cards
