PCI Express is new, fast, and is gonna be here for a while.

So I'd get used to it.

Quote:
PCI Express is the best because it has twice the bandwith of an 8x AGP
This is false, 16x does not mean double that of 8x, I believe it refers to the serial of the interface.

If you are buying totally new parts I wouldn't see any reason not to go PCI-E unless you don't want to speed a lot of money of a video card.

Its not that hard to find a PCI card, I still can find the old Geforce 2 MX400 64mb, i have maybe 4 of them... and they still work great... they even played halo for pc.... just wasnt all that great, had to play it on lowest settings possible and had to close a lot of background programs...

If i possible ill sell it and the driver cd if i can find it for im guessing $20... still works great and they have Arctic Silver 5 between the GPU and heatsink... Just i never used them with the Arctic Silver 5 so you will have a period of 200 hours to get the lowest temp achived....
