Here's a comparison of an AGP Radeon HD4650 vs. a PCI-E Radeon HD4650.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...gp,2383-4.html

This comparison is at least the same damn video chip and not some idiotic Nvidia to ATI AGP/PCI-E comparison. Unfortunately the cards are NOT identical, the AGP version has double the ram of the PCI-E card they used. However the clock speeds are the same.

My point exactly, you can't go by WEI at all. It doesn't prove anything.

Still living in the past i see 3777.

Isn't it about time you threw that crappy motherboard out of the window and joined us in the 21st century generation of motherboards and video cards.

Your system is crap
AGP is crap
HD3850's are crap (AGP version more so)
Carl Weathers is a crap actor
Your THREAD title is CRAP

Now fo and go TROLL in some other forum where people might believe your BS.

Like the OP I built a rig not too long ago specifically to have AGP. 3777's "intangible" comment does make a bit of sense if you're more of a hardware junkie than a gamer, which I am.

I mean heck, I could have built a cheaper AM2+ x2 rig with PCIE and DDR2, but I wanted to have AGP, DDR1 and Socket 939.

Both of my rigs run Vista (although my x3 720 rig runs x64) and the speed difference is just a little bit noticeable in the resolutions I run at.

It's really fun to fire up my "vintage" rig and play newer games at high settings.

Granted, my rig's not as fast as Carl ASROCK Weathers but it still holds its own against non-OC'ed C2Ds and most x2 cpus, and its video performance from the PCB OF DOOM® Radeon HD3850 is stellar to say the least.

I get the musclecar analogy. It's a bit of a stretch but it makes sense. Take a Pontiac Tempest, turn it into a GTO and race a new 'Stang and you get a similar sense of gratification..... but more so.
