PCI Express or AGP

Can anyone solve an argument for me which is better?PCI Express or AGP.Thanks

PCI Express is the way forward. It has much more bandwidth with the full bandwidth available in both directions simultaneously.

AGP is on it's way out.

I have a different view of the way foward)))

Interactive Holographic technology,is the new way foward,by 2260 all humans will have a holographic interface,where you actually walk the net rather than browse it.
We will all have data processes implanted in out heads so we can go online where ever we are without the confines of the bulky pc,just imagine walking the pages of the PCA forum with interactive guides and helpers,you could actually see a virus up close and personnell,and actually see it get destroyed,by the "interactive guards".
No more click to open pages,simply use the verbal interface and ask for what you need. Everything is done in a nanosecond of thought.

Dont beleive me?

Wait and see.......

should have said the only drawback to all this is
that PCWORLD have a global conglomerate and they have to do all the implants lol.

I'm going too upgrade too PCI Express soon when I get some money together and also buy a new case might consider getting a few sata hard drives as well is sata better than ide??

Yes SATA is better than IDE its faster and the cables are smaller helping increase the airflow for cooling. PCI Express is better than AGP faster and you'll notice most manufacturers are designing new graphics cards as PCIE only.

your question is almost academic. The mobo you buy will either be for AGP [as most say rapidly going out of use] or PCI-E [the current new standard] or whatever the next thing is going to be. I would not advise anyone at this time to go for an agp setup as they are becoming difficult to obtain and if the card should die in 6 months or so you may have to start again.

  RobCharles1981 18:35 26 Mar 2006

so what is PCI-E is that PCI Express?
