whats worth getting an X800 XT AGP or the PCI Express version?

I really cant see the difference,, in fact in some cases the AGP version is
even more expensive. Just how fast is PCI Express and is it really
worth the extra cash?

Make sure your motherboard supports pci-e first before you buy the card. pci-e isnt on anything but the new motherboards. If you want to future proof yourself then you will need a pci-e vid card and a mobo that has pci-e and a new cpu to go with it.
