Sorry, can't tell you. I can tell you when it goes to Private info, then I can tell friends with an agreement not to tell Media etc..

Sorry, I cannot do that. Besides, I have three dates that are given, so I couldn't even tell you which of those it was since Sony doesn't really have a definite date. Oh well.. I am off to work now, cya later.

lol, you wont have an AGP slot thats how. PCI-ex is a substitute for AGP which is better, and newer technology.

500? Nice budget. Well, if you are going for 500 dollar budget, then I would get some new RAM and a 6800GT and OC them both. Never get a card that is that advanced for AGP, the AGP 8x can't handle that bandwidth fully, I am sure that the bandwidth has been changed on the AGP x850. I don't recommend it, but you can do what you want. I say get some more RAM and a 6800GT/Ultra and OC it nicely for a much better gaming rig.

AND PCI EXPRESS SLOTS are BLACK and either VERY SHORT or VERY LONG. Easy to tell them apart, plus it will say on the motherboard PCIe x1, PCIe x4, PCIe x8, or PCIe x16.
