    AGP is a more direct, faster connection to the CPU and Memory.... in return
    much better performance.

    PCI has a longer path to travel before getting the information processed.

    Go AGP if you can ;)

    Your computer has to have an AGP slot to use an AGP video card. This
    will show you how you can tell:
