For some time, it was thought that agp is dead but ati/amd still gives life to this sytem with the release of 2600xt agp.

Graphics Processor ATI Radeon HD 3850
Form Factor ATX 231.19 x 111.99 mm
Bus Interface AGP 4X/8X
Memory GDDR3 512MB /256-bit interface
Clock Speed 702MHz core / 846MHz memory
Cooling System Single Slot Active Fan Cooler
Bracket Full Height
Display Support DL DVI-I /TVO / DL DVI-I
HDTV(via cable)
External Power PCIe Graphic External Power(2x4Pin)
Regulatory Standards CE; FCC; UL
