AGP and PCI-E are about the same speed now, there still plenty of bandwidth left in AGP-8x that GFX companies havnt used. But as its going PCI-E is becoming the new standard. If you can allways go for PCI-E.

A Geforce 6800 128MB on a AGP-8x will beet most current PCI-E because no card can use PCI-E its full power. Even in SLI mode I believe!

To be honest there was nothing much wrong with the old PCI when we all made the switch to AGP.

PCIE X1 slots are just like old pci slots except they are newer and faster, i think......

and there not back compatible with old cards, so when you need a new sound card in 6 months and there all in pcie format, you'll have to get a new mobo, clever money making scheme

Theoretically pci is faster than normal PCIE 1x, 133mb's compared to 100mb's. But for PCI to be faster there would have to be no other things on the PCI bus, e.g. sound cards, onboard raid, onboard lan, e.t.c... This is because the 133mb/s is shared between all the things on the bus, unlike PCIE which is dedicated for each port. Hope this makes sence
