i think the PCI would be a better choice for him, but performance-wise i really don't know, its just that there is more variety with PCI

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...145-087&depa=1

Yeah actually I'd have to agree with mini on that one.. A PCI fx5200 I believe is better then an AGP 2X mx420.
