This is just my thoughts ,if there is some sort of reason for having this ?
Nvidia and ATI will make and improve on AGP cards (both have stated untill somewhere around 2010, And all major mobo manf. will concur .
If you no anything about it you no that it will be around 2008,maybe
2009 ,before they pci-e starts noseing a little on a one on one.
And then they are not even certain ,If it don't sell ,It's not going to last .

PCI-E will be the dominant interface for new cards within 2 years. Yes, AGP cards will still be sold for awhile, but they will quickly become outdated.

Please speak proper English.

I couldn't understand half of your post, but I will say this:
--> PCI-E is the future format for video cards. AGP 8x doesn't have the bandwidth capacity to handle the cards that will be coming out soon.
--> Everybody will buy PCI-E because it won't be an option soon. It will be a standard, just like AGP 8x was.
--> PCI-E is expected to become dominant within 3 years since next generation cards will need the extra bandwidth.
