at least the 7800 GT should IMO. since the GT is not very expensive, but a good upgrade for somebody. provided they can run it!

yeah perhaps the GT but not the GTX. in any case i thought as it was the geforce 6 series was underpowered on AGP so what the hell could be achieved by using a geforce 7 on AGP?

There is no difference in performance between the 6800GT AGP and 6800GT PCI-E.

Actually, if the graphics makers were smart, they could continue to make AGP cards on a smaller scalle, fewer cards.

Why? Because their is a huge market stillmout there. Almost every mobo sold before the last 18 months is AGP. Many of these people want or need cards.

I'm not saying put the newest and fastest out. Keep the AGP cards a few notches below what is current, but keep them trickling out.

The company that does this, even if it isn't nVidia or ATI, will make a fortune...

Replacing a mobo is beyond most computer users, plus most don't want to lose everything on their hard drive (backing it up is too hard for most).

Think about it... How many companies have products that prey upon the sheer laziness of the public? I can see the dollar signs...

yeah but those same people who think 'backing up a hard drive is too hard' which if that's the case then yeah obviously removing a mobo would be way behond their comprehension....generally those are the type of people having machines built for them in the first place.

It's not just about the cards or even pushing SLI necessarily....it's the fact they want you to buy a new motherboard with their nice NVIDIA NFORCE chipset as well as a new PCI-E card.

Yeah they'd make money with AGP, but they are banking on people giving up this futile battle for AGP and just buying an nforce4 motherboard and nvidia card....MO' MONEY.

As much as I would like to see so I can maybe delay my next upgrade for another 6 months, what make you thing that the (8x)APG bus speed is going to be up for it?

Honestly, how many stupid people are out there.
(CLICK LINK)

OMG...... 5394 of them
