Everyone, hurry, we have to switch to PCI-E RIGHT NOW!!!!!!! We have to have that extra bandwith, PCI-E is the FUTURE!!!!!!

(In case you can't tell, I'm being EXTREMELY sarcastic. This is directed towards those that insist on getting PCI-E because it is the new technology.)

PCI-E is cheaper and allows SLI, that's why were using it

Well, compare 6800GT agp to 6800Gt PCI-E. How about 6600GT Agp to 6600Gt Pci-E? Which one is cheaper?

I cannot compare 6800GT because I dont own one, and their is no motherboard or set of motherboard's that would be 100% equal for the test.

6600GT PCI-E is cheaper to manafactuer.

A PCI-E GPU is actually more expensive than an AGP GPU.

The same goes for the motherboards.

PCI-E is cheaper to manafactuer than AGP for graphics cards. The reason why the AGP 6800GT's are cheaper is because the 6800GT is a native AGP card.

The reason however for a native PCI-E card being more expensive than it's AGP convert, is because supply and demand. 6600GT"s are mainly used for people upgrading, or building mid end PC's which usually feature AGP slots.
