Default buying a new computer? click here

Get a motherboard that has pci express instead of agp cause its hard to find a good agp card and if you find one the pci express cards are alot cheaper!!!

Look for a motherboard that has a PCI-e slot and not AGP because new cards and old cards are moving to the PCI-e interface and AGP is being phased out hense why its harder to find AGP cards.
