BFG Offers FREE Upgrade To PCI Express

BFG Technologies is offering a free upgrade to PCI Express for anyone that currently owns a working BFG AGP video card. Toss in another $50 and you can upgrade to an even better card. For full details, hit the link. See the chart below for a quick and dirty look at how it works.

I'm wondering the same thing, Rican. My wife's computer is running a BFG MX4000. It could use one of these old castaways.
