I was wondering what the performance difference between a AGP video card and a PCI Express card is.
I see a lot more motherboards coming out with the PCI Express. Is this the trend of the future? I'm trying to get a new home system for one of my designers. We have a couple of Matrox Parhelia 128mb cards left over from our old office systems, that i would like to use. These are a AGP card. I'm finding it difficult to get a new quality motherboard with AGP. Any information would be appreciated.
Our current office system is:
P4 3.2GHz, 800FBS on a AOpen AX4SG MaxII motherboard2mb ram
XP Pro SP2
Nvivia Quadro FX500 Driver: 126.96.36.199 (solidworks recommended)
SW 2005 SP5
SW 2006 SP2
