PCI is the technology of the future but in terms of numbers AGP is still and will for a long time be in the bulk of todays computers. As far as I'm aware there's no game been made that can take take full advantage of AGP x8 speed, how long that remains true is anybody's guess. Even the most graphically available game today can't get close to the limits of AGP's capabilities. I guess that doesn't matter though, AGP will eventually be phased out and it's true potential may never be explored as more and more (if not all) manufacturers start to produce PCI Express components, which at the end of the day doesn't really matter. The sheer nature of the pc industry is to advance and embrace new technology, upgrade and buy new parts, install the latest OS, get the fastest slimmest scanner, CPU, RAM, etc, the list goes on, and on, and on, and on.
