Is this not irritating to anyone else?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm guessing probably not, cause 95% of you have pci-e systems. But I walk into Best Buy today, just browsing like usual, and I look in the gfx card area. Now I know I can go on any online store and blow away store prices, but I like to check just for fun. I have an AGP system, and have always waited for the 7800GS to go down in price. They have a 7900GT OC for PCI-E @ $269.99 and a 7800GS AGP for $379.99. . .how do they justify selling a slower card for almost 100 dollars more? I mean I know nobody really uses AGP now, but I would think that would LOWER prices, to get rid of the old and bring in the new. . .anyone else with AGP or even PCI-E find that irritating?

Actually more users today are still on AGP then have switched over to PCI-E. Companies just want the AGP stuff to seems ridiculous so people upgrade to whole new systems.

The "analogy" The Pook has put it on? can't be any more clear. Unless the air isn't light up there.
