Im going to build a new pc. Im stuck between 2 things.....
CPU:
Athlon 3200+ OR
P4 3.4ghz

GFX:
AGP 8x OR
PCI Express 16x

Some people i know say that AGP is still better than the new PCI-E O.o
What do you guys think?

If you go athalon-64 you have to have agp 8x. Perfectly fine, we dont need PCI-e at all, only intel is pushing it. We have only just found the true limits of agp 4x ---- yes do ga athalon -64. if you can get a 3500+ on a socket 939 mobo

If you want to wait another month or so there should be some nForce 4 boards out which are SLI PCIe capable. Sounds like the thing to be buying, or you can get the new Pentium chipset has DDR2 and PCIe if you wanted that.

i wouldnt bother with pci-e at the moment, it offers no real world increase with our current gear over agp8x, save yourself some money and go for a nf3-250 socket 939 a64 system
