Default Prescotts

Few questions i cant seem to answer:

Can you buy a prescott mobo with AGP on it .

What speed should i go for best money to performance ratio i was looking at 3ghz or 3.2ghz

Should i buy a PCI Express 5750 just to get by until christmas so i can ask for a 6800 ultra pci express .

Will there be a big diffrence between pci express 6800s and AGP

Cheers guys

The DDR2 Sounds good, why sell your current graphics though?! I've heard PCI express is crappy. I didn't know prescotts used different motherboards, are you sure they do?


**EDIT** Just stick your 5900 in that machine to sell and keep your xfx 6800, or have you sold it to LK already?

I heard otherwise. Root has a strong opinion on PCI Express.

I'm not sure if it was Root, but someone said it was crappy.

it's not crappy, but the expected increase in performance was not up to it's expectations.
