just a quick question is 7800 the best you can get in AGP and is it worth it or upgrading to PCI express the way to go

the best thing would be to upgrade to PCIe but that expensive since you need to upgrade most of your stuff.

But yes, the 7800 is the best card for AGP

IIRC, BFG does name a 7800 GS for AGP

Yes a 7800GS is the best out for AGP. What card do you have now? and whats your current system specs?

If you have a midrange to high end system and don't plan on replacing the motherboard anytime soon, it would probably be worth it. But if you had already planned on upgrading to PCIe in the near future, then i would save up for a PCIe setup.

Yes, if I'm not mistaken, Nvidia and ATI has said that there current generation of AGP cards are the last ones they'll make, so when nvidia releases its 8000 series, you won't see any AGP cards among them.

That being said, the 7800GS would probably give you an average performance boost of about 20-30% over your 6800.

Not worth it in my mind. Save your money, go PCI-express.
