I am assuming no since AGP 8 peforms the same as PCI-E 16 in real life.

Even a 6600GT on AGP 4x vs PCI-E16x, no peformance difference really

PCI and AGP8X you can notice a difference, and im not smoking anything.

Video card's do not use anywhere near the intefaces maximum bandwidth, in some therad around here I tested AGP 8X vs AGP 4x on an 6600GT with the same results.

I will do it again for you, if you want. Maybee even 2x.

To the origional poster, to go PCI-E you need to replace virtually everything, motherboard, CPU, video card ect. I am assuming you have an AGP slot since you have a 5200, so you can stick a nice AGP 6600GT in their and be happy

However, when games start to take advantage of PCIE's increased bandwith, the adapter would probably take a hit
