    Hi all,

    Just finished building my new rig, i got a PCI express motherboard that has onboard video so i can wait for a bit for the PCI express cards to all come out, but i was wondering if people had opinions on which is the better card. If you have a link to a review that compaires them side by side all the better, but please don't do compairsons off of AGP results as i will be doing PCI Express, cheers.....

    It doesn't matter if it is AGP or PCIE. Nvidia for open GL, ATI for 3d. There are plenty of places on the net that discuss this in detail. It depends on what you want. The 2 cards are pretty much equal. Mind you I am using an AGP card. PCI express isn't really outperforming AGP yet and most likely won't for at least another year minimum.
