Default AGP or PCI-E?

For the Gigabyte 6600Gt that im gonna buy, should be lookin for the PCI-E or just the normal AGP? i would think that i would just need the AGP since isnt PCI-E for sli? i may be wrong.


Edit: also, the one im lookin at is:

Gigabyte GeForce 6600GT+HSI 128M
Gigabyte GeForce 6600GT+HSI 128MB AGP8x DVI TV Out

anything wrong with that one?

lol yea, it depends on your motherboard
