shouldnt he be getting an AGP card instead of PCI, i heard its better.
I thought they don't put AGP slots on most motherboards anymore?
They don't, do they even make the new cards in AGP...
Yeah, manufacturers are still putting new GPUs on AGP cards, but the AGP market is not very competitive anymore. Plus the technology can only be pushed so far.
Guess it probably hampers the performance of the card a bit and if your motherboard is that old would there really be any point in upgrading the GPU with a new one anyway.
I thought PCI-E2 was out now or coming out, and when is USB 3.0 coming as USB 2.0 is god-damn slow...
EDIT: Looks like USB 3.0 is on it way, 5.0Gb/s is pretty fast, faster than most HDD read/write speeds so that is all that is relevant at the moment, but I want it now, probably isn't any point in buying a new laptop until it is integrated as that is one of the key functions I use it for.
