"It's new, but not better. Motherboards equiped with PCI Express sockets cost more. 16x PCI Express runs faster than 8X AGP only in theory. In the real world, AGP comes out faster almost every time. Graphic cards aren't nearly fast enough for AGP to become a bottleneck. PCI Express tends to be less efficient, and tasks the CPU more than AGP, especially when a big game is running, and the CPU is working at nearly 100%. Also, the last time I checked, the fastest graphics card aviliable is still AGP.

It's not a matter of paying a lot more for a little bit of speed increase. By buying PCI Express, you'll be paying a lot more for a slower machine." -cnet
