Default PCI-E or AGP?

SJRDUDE: What is the deal with PCI-Express? Is it better than AGP 8X? I am building a gaming PC, should I get a MOBO with PCI-E or AGP? That rhymes!!!

basically a bigger "AGP" with higher bandwith. PCI-E is potenially better than AGP, but since current PC games dont even reach the limit of AGP you might as well go with AGP.
