PCI-E can provide a much faster interface for the graphics card but I'm pretty sure at the moment even with the fastest single card setups there is little or no difference in performance at all between AGP and PCI-E.


I have no idea how well Geforce cards work in OSX86 but the Radeon x1600, x1800 and x1900 seem to have worked pretty well so far.

As bubbaganoush said, ATI x1600 pro, X1800 and X1900 are the only ones that are compatible with OSX atm.

better get ATI not Nvidia . And go here for more information about ATI cards that are supported.
