I advise you to go with pci-e.
Some reasons here: http://www.tcmagazine.info/articles.php ... &pagenum=1
(you can jump to the conclusion if you don´t wanna read it all :) )
The pci-e cards are less expensive and you can always go for as sli system (allowing you with a nice graphic upgrade without spending much money in a brand new card and having to sell the old one!)

Quote:
AGP cards are going to slowly be phased out of production, and eventually PCI-E cards will become cheap enough to make SLI solutions feasible. The future lies with PCI-e, and that alone should decide between the two for most prospective purchasers. If that’s not enough, the MSI K8N Diamond gets our TechConnect Silver Award for its performance and features, and future-proof technology set.

I would go with PCI-e, as was already said: AGP is slowly being phased out of production and PCI-e will be taking over. But in case you are worried, there are PCI-e to AGP adapters or vice versa.
