Not sure if this is an apples / oranges comparison you are making, comparing
"AGP" to "SLI". Maybe you mean like this:
(1) AGP, (2) PCI-E, or (3) PCI-E SLI ?
And if you are buildng something right now, I would leave out the AGP choice
because PCI-E is the new graphics interface standard. I don't think they
even make any 7800-line cards in AGP flavor, do they?
Finally, if you are choosing between a motherboard that will do one PCI-E
slot or two, get one that does two but only buy one video card right now.
And which one? I'd get the 7800 GTX if I were you, because it is the fastest
thing out there right now. And later you have the option of adding one more
if you need it. But at this moment, it might be a bit of a waste to have two
of them. Two reasons: (a) not many apps would take advantage of it; and (b)
bleeding edge price premium.
