http://www.engadget.com/2007/02/02/nvidias-geforce-8600-series-brings-dx10-without-breaking-the-ba/ Sounds great for poor people like me who cannot affored a Geforce 8800. Anyway it looks like the Ultra would be the sweeter deal :D
Here's another link to add on to yours Videoslave http://www.guru3d.com/newsitem.php?id=4834 It shows the current info on the 8 series line. Nvidia is really trying to get DX10 to the masses. Hope AGP will go DX10.
Good one Big Jedi! BTW in my thread tittle, I ment *and* instead of but :S
Thanks Videoslave. Yeah that makes more sense saying and instead of but. Hope that they'll at least make a 8300 in AGP. What do you think?

Yeah they should bring the 8300's and mabey 8600's to the AGP But that would probally happen later, Becuase most people buy now have there hands on a pci express based pc. I also am cursious on what ATI/AMD is going to do with there new line of cards.
I also hope ATI will make an AGP card too. The current best AGP card on the market is the x1950PRO from ATI not the 7800GS from Nvidia.
That 8600 Ultra looks good, and so does the price.
Hope that they'll at least make a 8300 in AGP. What do you think?
I think the only one that could possibly see a AGP version is the 8300, most people have PCI-Express now, especially the gamers which is what the faster cards are marketed towards.
-StaticX-;3522835...most people have PCI-Express now, especially the gamers which is what the faster cards are marketed towards.
But it would be unwise for Nvidia and ATI to forget the budget crowd. The budget crowd is like a foundation on a house, gotta have it or the rest won't work. Without the budget crowd Nvidia and ATI wouldn't have as many people as they do buying their GFX cards.
I have to believe that the AGP market is still a pretty decent number of people/computers.
Yeah I know alot of people that have spent an arm and leg on a top end AGP machine back in the day and let me they're notthing to laugh at. My freind who has an AGP based pc has an FX althon 3 gigs of ram and 750 GB harddrive and a X850 XL and its better then my outproforms my old pciexpress P4 even with my Geforce 7950 GTX.
