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:

nVidia:

5750 PCIe 128
5750 PCIe 256
6200 128mb
6200 256mb
6200 64mb + Turbo Cache
6600 128mb
6600 256mb
6600GT 128mb
6800 128mb
6800 256mb
6800GT 256mb
6800 Ultra 128mb
6800 ultra 256mb
6800 ultra 512mb (what a WASTE)
7800GTX 256mb (THIS CARD IS DA BOMB!!!)

ATI:

x300 128mb
x300 256mb
x600pro 128mb
x600pro 256mb
x600XT 128mb
x600XT 256mb
x700 128mb
x700 256mb
x700pro 256mb
x800 128mb
x800 256mb
x800pro 128mb
x800pro 256mb
x800xl 128mb
x800xl 256mb
x800xt 256mb
x800xt pe 256mb
x850xt 256mb
x850xt pe 256mb (this card is awesome as well, but not as good as the 7800GTX)

no no, PCI and PCI Express are VERY DIFFERENT! PCI BUS runs at 66MHz while the PCI Express BUS runs at 100MHz. Also, PCI has a much lower bandwidth (20x-120x lower) PCI Express are very differnt looking slots, and are NOT white colored like the PCI slots, they are usually black, red, purple, or blue.
