Hey if your looking for the right price cards right now, AGP is the thing, PCI-E all those cards do is take a AGP 8x to the limits! 8x 16x i mean look at the old pci 33 mhz and look at the 8x AGP 533 mhz could you tell the difference that much from pci to agp 8x? I think probably should wait a bit for pci-e to get back to normal prices. AGP will do the job for the next few years and the price is definetly right!
