Default Price of AGP graphics cards

Why is it that AGP graphics cards are almost always more expensive than their PCI-E counterparts?

Because, noone really manufacturs them anymore. Everyone is moving on too PCI EX. There is less of a market for them, so, less people make the cards, so the price goes up.

AGP will be gone soon, you will only be able to find AGP cards at car boot sales lol..

You will find most motherboards dont evan have AGP slots anymore.
