There is only PCIE, no AGP is being made.

..that sucks... i guess the 7800 is not gonna be found in a lot of rigs. which means higher prices!

Is the 7800 really necessary? Are there any games,applications out there that the 6800gt can't handle?? I play BF2 with my 6600gt with decent performance. Plus the 7800 is $600 vs $300 for a 6800gt.....

Of course you will need a new mboard as well, and I'm not sure, possibly newer ram...

you'd need a PCI-E motherboard, and a good PSU (24-pin), and a lotta ca$h!
