I am looking at buying a dell they have a great deal happening and i would be looking to upgrade the graphics card although they only come with a PCI-e so would it be worth it to buy this computer and get a Graphics card for PCI-e or just to buy a different computer with an AGP slot

PCI-E stands for PCI Express, I did not know Dell was offering this yet. PCI Express is better then AGP and the wave of the future.

pci-e is faster (16x as opposed to 8x) but agp feeds directly from the memmory, not processer (so ive heard) but don't know exactly how much better that is...agp costs more too.
