I mean, I have a fairly new 3.2Ghz P4 and really I want a PCI-Express graphics card, or my system is fairly useless - I want to be able to upgrade, and buying an AGP graphics card would just be wastefull.
Yay, good time to buy :D. Makes a nice change.
Also, just out of curiosity, the 3700 should be at worst mid/low in 2 years? You don't see any massive leaps being taken in CPU technology...
(Unless that whole dual-CPU takes off. But that's forecasted not to be taken advantage of, properly, until 2009 at the earliest...)
> AMD 3700 / 4000+ anyone?
I say 3700+ especially after AMD's price drops last week.
AMD 3700 / 4000+ anyone?
Also - overclockers have christmas sales, right?

Unless your looking to use Windows Vista next year where PCIe is one of it's requirements for optimal performance.
There are still some decent AGP cards out there like the 6800 GT or the X850. And by the time they are outdated and in need of replacing so will your processor in all likelihood.
Besides, getting an AGP one wouldn't be "wasteful" at all.
Any idea why?
