Default Re: AGP vs PCI-E x1, x16

Buy a motherboard with an AGP slot. They are still making them, so get a really good motherboard that will be very upgradeable so that you can keep it for much longer. This way, when AGP does die out, you'll still have a decent motherboard and a trusty AGP slot.

dude! it's not the point of buying it. AGP won't dies til a good year or 2.

Now if you call people stupid cuz they don't buy PCI-E, then keep it for yourself!

lol dude what are you talking about? Just because AGP will go out of fashion doesn't mean you have to buy a new card. Sure you'll probably want to since games will be much more advanced, but you don't HAVE to do anything, the graphics just won't be as good.

You know I was talking to PZEROFGH right? And I highly doubt they would do that, AGP is already on its way out, manufacturers don't even make AGP first, they go with the PCI-E card and then if there is a big enough demand they make the AGP version. I don't see why we would suddenly see new versions of AGP, PCI-E is the future of video cards.

That may be true, but I do know what is likely and what is unlikely. It's VERY unlikely for something that is already barely hanging in there to somehow get a big breakthrough so that people will continue using it.
