AGP and pci-e doesn't really matter because most games don't use up that much bandwidth anyways, just go for whatever interface card your mobo supports

oh btw, pci card are like, um, let's just say you wouldn't want to play games on them.

PCI - Very slow for graphics cards
AGP - Fast, most graphics cards has a agp version, will exist for around another 2 years.

PCI-Express - Very new, very fast, very futureproof. Todays graphics cards card utilise the bandwidth of pci-e.

good point, it's future proof and can easily be upgraded if you have an SLI mobo

If you want a PC that'll be ready for the newer games and graphics in the next couple of years (and can afford the associated equipment) then PCI-e is definetly the way to go. For a little cheaper and kick *** gaming for now you can always go AGP.

PCI Express is the best because it has twice the bandwith of an 8x AGP
