    if "new" video card is agp & if new motherboard has pci-e slot than can't use the "new" card as new board doesn't have agp!!

    oh nah i know that.....when i do upgrade in the future i wil get a board with pci-e 16x, and a pci express video card....there arent any boards out there that have both agp 8x and pci-e slots on them so.....yeah new board and new card in future will be pci-e

    why not get a board that has pci-e & get the new video card now instead of having to get another new board

    i could get the board and cpu combo for about 15 dollars more with a pci-e board.....then the card would be about another $200....thats why im figuring ill do that later is the cost of the card.... but i dont know this is the one area ive been debating with thew most.....im still undecided....trying to weigh it out here....
