I'm going university next year (and this is the millionth thread I've started with this line) and am planning on building a computer which I'll be buying the components for next monday.
Now, I do not play video games so I assume I will not need the latest graphics cards. The computer will be used for browsing, music, programming and watching TV series.
I have £480 to spend and I already have a HDD and AGP GFX card (Radeon 9250, not brilliant).
- Good for upgrading in the future, allows me to use the latest graphics card
- Movies will look nice
- Bad upgradability
Although AGP has bad upgradability, I don't know whether or not I'll actually ever need to upgrade to PCI-E.
So the question is, given I don't play on games, is PCI-E worth much more than AGP?
Thanks in Advance
PS. I'll be running a 64bit processor and distribution incase this helps.
