Re: 16000 on 3D Mark 2005 via AGP proves that there was never a need for PCI-E 1.0
who remembers the geforce 5950FX 256MB AGP? that was the king before Sharder Model 2.0/DX9c came out. Any game i fed it would be instantly devoured and digested 100s of frames per second. Doom 3 and Quake 4 were the latest games i ran on this card and it performed flawlessly on Ultra. AGP will come back and then PCI will replace it then back again. Nothing in PC world is dead just refined.
