Question AGP Port Question

If I have an AGP port with this computer.... SONY PCV-RS620G MEDIA CENTER 3.0 P4 1GB RAM TV TUNER, and a NVIDIA 5200 graphics card, can I upgrade to any AGP graphics card I want to, like the best on the market?

PCIE 2.0 Is Currently the best Slot for graphics cards,but you can still get AGP Cards,like the nvidia 7950.

It took some finding but I finally located the specs and yes it has an 8x AGP port so the fastest AGP card on the market will run at fullspeed.

The latest card for AGP on the market is a Radeon 2600PRO.
AGP, to this date doesn't even use the full bandwith. It's a shame they didn't pushed AGP to it's limits before putting PCI-E to the market.

the 7950GT would perform better than the 2600PRO anyday though, and DX10 is a joke.
