Default Yet another PCI VS. AGP Thread.

This ones a little different the reason this whole thing started before was because of

Interest. On to the differences. now it’s actually needed for something useful I got another

Friend since I told him what I did for my other buddy I built him a computer he went out

And got all the parts himself since he knew what he wanted like jimmy did when I built

His for him but he wants me to assemble it for him like I did jimmy here’s the thing I just

Got all the stuff today case motherboard etc he’s got a AGP 4x slot and that’s it and four

PCI slots just normal PCI not PCI-E here’s the deal he still hasn’t got the video card he

Wanted yet but he said which should he get a PCI card or an APG card so I told him I

Would ask here and see what you people have to say what would be faster an AGP Card

That’s 4x AGP or a PCI card? And he’s getting a newer card he’s willing to spend around

600bucks for one so recommendation of good video cards to recommend to him would

Be nice too since I’m still new to this kind of thing even thing I now know enough to get by. Thanks again everyone.

Note: I’ve been told AGP 8 xs is faster then PCI because it’s 2.0 GB and PCI is 33megs
But what about APG 4x and PCI?

AGP 4 is half as fast as AGP 8. Do the math.

If you don't want to, then here it is: AGP 4x is better.

And $600 is a bit to spend on a video card if he only has a AGP 4. Get a new motherboard and a new video card.

Computers are merely contraptions that shufle ones and zeros.
