Default Motherboard AGP/PCIe16

I'm ready to order the stuff for my new computer, but the graphics card is still to be had.

I'm not sure about this motherboard. I want to know if it supports AGP or PCIexpress x16 graphics cards.

I want to know because apparently, most ATi cards are PCIexpress x16...

Negative. Many current PCI-E crads are cheaper than their AGP counterparts. As the GPU market migrates steadily by the day towards PCI-E, AGP counterparts of the latest whiz-bang card are likely to be much more expensive. There isn't even any known plans for an AGP 7800 GTX...

Cheapest ATi Radeon x800 = $155. (Its a PCI express)
Next cheapest ATi Radeon x800 which is a AGP = $209.

***NOTE 34% INCREASE IN PRICE***

EDITED: Misread your post there, Flanker. For a minute I thought you were pointing out a more expensive PCI-E version of the X800 (which version btw?).

From personal experience, there's nothing wrong with VIA's chipsets.
