Default Re: What Type Of Expansion Slot Is This?

I know that I'm not 100% accurate on this but for the most part, pci-e x16 is about twice as fast (about twice as much bandwidth) as an agp x8 slot. As for the two cards that choose the agp card is the better bet. The fastest card that is agp and on the market currently I believe is the nvidia 7900 gs. If you are a gamer and dont feel like upgrading the rest of your computer then the 7900 gs is your best bet. Hope that helps some.

well pci (old thing) and pci express 1x is the same speed, just different slot. pci-ex x16 is 16 times faster than regular pci. just compare everything to pci (old slot). so agp 8x would be 8 x faster than regular pci i believe.
