PCI-E vs AGP video cards

Gimmie some help here guys! Besides the obvious differences between the PCI-Express and the AGP video cards (One goes in the AGP slot, the other in the PCI-E slot) could someone tell me the big difference? Which is better to get?

PCI-E is 4 times faster at streaming data than AGP. PCI-E will rule AGP in the future.

Aha, even if the stats look alike PCI-E will still run faster?

That is standard PCI!!!! PCI express is a major step forward in Video speed. Just as serial ATA is many times faster than IDE which was unable to go faster than 133 buss speed

PCI =-express will be standard on new motherboards just as AGP did several years ago

Great... Means my 8xAGP Radeon is going to be worthless. Great... just great.

Is IDE-e going to replace AGP? Or is the IDE-e just a faster version of the IDE which is found on all motherboards around the world?

All the new boards have both IDE and Serial ATA for HDD's I am not sure But I bet the PCI-E Boards will also have the slower AGP. Rellik you dont have to worry yet it will be a few years before AGP Disappears

I know... heck, even ordering a floppy 1.44 is an option now a days on new computers. Most dells you buy wont have it unless you specify it!

I know my board has AGP and PCI... My cards wouldnt be doing what theyr'e doing if it didnt My sound Blaster Live 5.1 wouldnt work, my Radeon 9700 wouldnt work, my ethernet wouldnt work .... and so on and so on.

But I know when I saw my first AGP slot on a Motherboard.. I said "What the h3ll is that for???" And I looked at it funny.... AGP, what the <bleep> is that? <plugs in his Voodoo3 2500 PCI videocard and forgets the AGP>



Seeing the speeds of this new PCI-E will be interesting though.
