Lightbulb What is the best AGP Card

I was just wondering what is the best AGP card out there? I hear that the best ones are 600 Ultra,7800gt, BFG 7800gs oc, and xfx 7800gs agp extreme edition, in the specs i looks like the xfx beats bfg in the7800 but I was also wondering what is better 7800gs256mbgddr3 or 7600gt512mb gddr2? any answers?

the best AGP cards are 7800 GS's. the GT's and GTX's, and the 7900 series are only in PCI-E

i like maroon1 said......the BFG 7800gs OC......im about to order one this week. looks amazing. true the XT1950s are out there, but im just hardcore nvidia. better drivers FTW.

and actually, this is the best AGP card/most expensive/hardest to find/leet bbq

i know they say that the bfg is the best, but it looks like the xfx agp extreme edition is clocked a little bit higher than the bfg I was just wondering if that made a difference
