Default Re: Do i need AGP to get a new vid card

u cant get an agp unless u buy a whole new motherboard, agop adn pc are even remotely similar, even in size agp is quite larger and faster.......and u cannot get pci-express for a pci slot, u need a pci-express slot and only the newest and most expensive computers have pci-express slot, which is by far the fastest. Ati radeon cards seem to be made in pci still, maybe try a 9200 or somthing low because it isn't worth pouring a lot of money into a pci card

the radeon is way better at those low levels....the nvidia make great mid to high priced cards though, but for cheaper cards radeon is usually the way to go
