the more produced an item is, the cheaper it is. If more factories start making PCI-E cards, the costs to produce them will drop (probably by about 2 cents)
But my point is, do you think this justifies the "Why wont AGP just die" attitude, when there's a lot of ppl out there who still have AGP systems, I mean, if I had to choose between having the price for my GTX285 going from $340 to $337.99 when I bought it, but having to sacrifice any chance to upgrade my old AGP rig, or even let my father upgrade his old PC at home, or my cousin get a new AGP card for his good ol gaming PC, I would gladly choose to pay the extra $2...
Now, I don't see this as an "AGP Tax", and I really have no idea of how much droping AGP production completely would affect the price for PCIe parts, but does it really affect me so much to just wish other ppl didn't have the opportunity to upgrade?
Anyway, in the end the card doesn't even exist so, we may finally be witness to the end of AGP, an end that was supposedly due about 4 years ago; and for today the HD3850 remains king among old AGP rigs...
