I think the problem is with the motherboards. The selection of AGP motherboards is already diminishing (check the number of out of stock AGP Socket 939 boards at newegg). The newest chipsets from Nvidia have no AGP support at all, but have many other features that people want.

Id love an Nforce 4 board... but since I have an AGP 6800 GT and money doesnt grow on trees, im forced to go with the limited selection of Nforce 3 Ultra boards. Not that they are bad, it just kind of sucks that I have to buy an outdated motherboard for a top of the line video card and CPU.
