Default 256mb 6800 pci-e?

I've just ordered a new computer with an Nvidia 6800 pci express graphics card (256mb). I've never come across this particular card before and was wondering if anyone new anything about it, how it compares to a standard agp 6800 and more importantly, is it any good?

2x as fast, wider bandwith. But, since it's so new, the cards today don't use PCI-E to it's full capacity, so you might as well save yourself some money and go with AGP.
