AGP is the slot type that was upgraded from the PCI, PCIE is the same thing to AGP. PCIE currently only runs at 8x speeds like the AGP 8x, however soon they will run at 16x and an overall speed and performance difference in the graphics card. PCIE is the future proof way to go, although many performance cards are still in the AGP category.
