AGP is an older technology, and ALL NEW CARDS are not engineered on that BUS anymore. The PCI Express BUS has an enormous bandwidth and can handle huge amounts of data unlike AGP. Also, the engines and shading on the newer PCIe cards is enhanced because of the increased bandwidth.
Cards that are available in PCIe version include but are not limited to:
5750 PCIe 128
5750 PCIe 256
6200 64mb + Turbo Cache
6800 Ultra 128mb
6800 ultra 256mb
6800 ultra 512mb (what a WASTE)
7800GTX 256mb (THIS CARD IS DA BOMB!!!)
x800xt pe 256mb
x850xt pe 256mb (this card is awesome as well, but not as good as the 7800GTX)
