Default Video card help.....

I was planning on gettin a BFG Geforce 7800 gs because im not ready to change my mobo just yet to a PCI-e board. But is there any PCI-e
video cards that are BETTER than the Geforce 7800 gs for near the same price? Are agp cards cheaper since they are about to go obselete? Also i would like a recommenedation if they are any better agp cards also for the same price range (200$-280$)

I was looking at the 7800 GS one time. Instead, I found a cheap PCI-E motherboard and got a 7900 GT. at stock, the 7900 GT is significantly better.
plus, you can volt mod the card to get very high overclocks

The 7800GS is probably the best AGP you can get from nvidia. From ATI maybe X850XT or X850PRO, and they're cheaper. Yes there are better cards such as the 7900 or 7950GT then the 7800GS for the same price.

I just noticed that the bfg geforce 7800 gs pci-e version is about 50 buks more than the agp version......which is why i really want to stick with agp for awhile.....
