^he can't use PCI-E dude..

But indeed the 7800GS OC Is the best card for you to buy @ AGP x8, question is.. do you want to buy a good AGP x8 card, or wait a while and just update the whole thing and buy a really good card for PCI-E for same price as a good agp card [while the PCI-E will be x2 better (or even x3+ lol)]

No, the card is a AGP version of the 7800gt.

THe PCIE, was because he said PCI, when he should have wrote PCIE.
