Default AGP Question

When PCI-Express will be introduced later this year, will AGP immediately disappear or will the two co-exist for a while ?

I'm asking because I'm considering buying a new graphic card and I was wondering if it was worthwhile...

thx already !

ATI will be releasing an AGP and PCI-E version of their upcoming card, I don't see why nVidia or others won't do the same. I think we will see up to 1 year that they will co-exist, and then some. You can still buy PCI videocards that can give you average/low performance in current games. says enough in my book
