    Wow great find now all he has to do is upgrade to a PCIe motherboard that's compatible with the rest of his hardware.

    Don't forget he's looking for a AGP card for a reason.

    I bought my amd 64 about year ago when it came out. so with the pci-e, it would be more expensive. Anyways, AGP is good enough for now. About 2 years from now, those PCI-e prices will drop down and that's when i would get them.

    True. But in the end that isn't such a big deal. Depending on the socket used by his processor he might be able to get a PCIe motherboard for his hardware.

    Personally I'm waiting for dual core to go full swing. I could upgrade now for about $200 to get a PCIe system (motherboard and Pentium D), but I'd still have to get a video card. So I figure why not wait until those DX10 cards are out.

    If i want to upgrade, i would upgrade it with the dual-PCIe with SLI motherboard, or something like that. I've check out some dealer sites for the computers with super RAM memory and graphic card, but the price usually over $1000
