What is the difference between a PCI Graphics Card and an AGP one? Is it speed or something else? Am looking to buy one and would like to understand the difference before I make decision.

Thx

PCI - click here

AGP - click here

AGP is faster than PCI (the interface) so for games it is ideal. All of the top cards are AGP'd because of this.

If you have an AGP slot on your motherboard than buy an AGP card and take advantage of it.

But you need to have a AGP slot to put it in
