Question AGP or PCI-e?

Hey

My new mobo which I am very happy with is fantastic. IDE and SATA support, hyperthreading tech, and an AGP slot as well as an PCI-e slot. Ive bought an AGP card which really wasnt that expensive, Nvidia Geforve fx 5500, do you think I should go with an AGP card or PCI-e?

PCI-e all the way. AGP is going to be phased out soon. Most new mobos dont even have agp slots.

PCI-e for sure, all the good cards are coming out on them now, so it'll last for some time being the input slot fo video cards.

PCI-E is the way to go. Dump that AGP card and get PCI-Express!

Yes, you MUST get PCI-e. No exceptions. Geforce 8000 is coming out or whatever you want to call it and it's PCI-e.
