AGP or PCI-E - Page 2

post #11 of 21
there was a rumor of a x1800xl agp but dont know if that is true, either way dont buy an agp mobo unless you already have the card to go with it.

Plus, with AGP, you can't SLI...meaning you are stuck with one card. This is the reason Nvidia has stopped producing AGP cards, even the 6800GT. The 6600GT is the highest card you can get in AGP.

almost, but not quite. The best AGP card made was the 6800 Ultra, but the only one still made is the 6600 GT I think

Thats what I meant, 6600 GT is the only one still made. AGP is dead...we are in the age of PCI-Express and SLI.

Best AGP card made would have to be the ATi x850xtpe. But yea, if you have the money, go with PCIe, but AGP cards are still decent, just not top of the line.

I would have much more respect for the X850XT PE if it included Shader Model 3 support. Other than that, it is a very powerful card. I dont understand why ATI left out something as important as Shader Model 3 from that generation.

i'm pretty sure i will go for AGP this time around. I might start off with something like a 5700 AGP (still a descent card) and once i get enough money get a 6600 or 6800 (if i can get one) and have the performance i need.

Yeh but nvidia has stopped producing the chips for all the models, though it has released a new 6800GS to take there place.
