They are not better. Not yet. It will take another few months before they get better. Right now the Nvidia 6800's (AGP) are the best.

PCI-E supports about twice as much bandwidth, that's why future cards for PCI-E will be way faster than AGP cards.

I think that AGP video cards are better. For more information about AGP vs. PCI video cards, search TF for more results.

Also, welcome to Tech Forums!
