Default Re: 6800 Series Sli/pci-e And The Future For Apg

Personally, I've been hearing about PCIe boards for the past 3 years, and kinda waited until they came out to upgrade. That's right, up until about a month ago, I was running an AMD Athlon 1.1 Ghz, on a crappy motherboard, with crappy ram....just saving money away for my upgrade.

Is AGP gone? No! The problem is that there aren't going to be a lot of new AGP motherboards made, which means that sooner or later everybody will move into the PCIe land.

AGP is FAR from dead. I plan on keeping my 6800GT AGP for a long time (at least 1.5 years or more). When I go 64bit in the spring i WILL be getting an AGP motherboard as I dont plan on ditching this kick ass card anytime soon!
