Hey guys.. Very simple.. I'm sure I know which to pick but.. My brother.. I'm building a computer for him.. Very basic... Celeron 420 etc.. anywho the board he has is that asrock board... With both AGP and PCIE..

WHile the AGP is at 8x the PCIE is only at 4x..

So i'm wondering... 7300GS 256 at PCIE 4x

or

ATI 9600XT 256mb @ AGP8x

Look at my sig rig is that what he has?
AGP 8X is 2gb/sec .
PCI-E 4x is slower than agp8X though
PCI-e 1.1 is 250mb/sec per lane, so 4x is 1gb/sec ,16x is 4gb/sec these are max
values and no cards make 4gb/sec at this time.

I have a 7300 and it sucks,
I have a 9800pro AGP it wipes the floor with it,
My 6800gt agp wipes the floor with both those,
and my x1950 AGP destroys all three.
My x1300Pro PCI-E is a very good entry level card
and blows away the 7300 but would get whooped by a 2600

You can get a 2600xt for like 80 bucks.
