    agp is better than pci, pci-e is better than agp. isa and vesa-lb are long dead:-)

    assuming that you are defining feedback as "performance"

    Industry is moving PCIE so go the PCIE route, AGP is on it's way out.

    Was that a typo or did you really mean PCI ? As in PCI (old skool) ?

    pci-e is supposedly 3 times faster that agp 8x. Problem is that some manufacturers ( like nvidia ) dont have true pci-e cards. Their cards use an pci-e to agp bus converter, so the card is still only running at agp speeds.

    So wen nvidia releases its new 8800gtx with full pci-e compliancy i shall sell my house to get 1

    I reckon the next nvidia card is gonna own,provided the dnt rush releasing it.
    Will probs be powerful enough and have enough memory to run the whole google earth in 1sec and will have an extra option to zoom further

    But gfx cards r gettin soo big and running them sli now is making space in a box alot less for other things ie sound cards, heatsinks etc.

    Neway im happy with my 6800
    Will have to do until the games become to great 4it
