If we were talking about what appears to be the pinnacle of AGP, I would understand the supply/demand situation, but the 6800 doesn't appear to be the pinnacle.

I realize that AGP is going by the wayside, but I stay with it because there is no such thing as a PCIe board that has sufficient PCI slots. I can understand that a gamer might prefer this, but a anyone that needs and expects their computer to be able to do anything, they need PCI slots.
