The reason is this is that Intel AGP systems are Socket 478 / DDR based whereas Intel's PCI-Express platform is Socket 775 with DDR2. You can salvage your hard drive and optical drives but all major components must be replaced to migrate to PCI-Express.
As a matter of fact, there were (are?) some Socket 775 boards with AGP. I had a P4 with an ASUS P4P800 (IIRC) wich was 775 + AGP. And you can get this one:

Yea and when PCIe2 comes out, I'll be laughing in these same peoples faces who have to upgrade their mobo just for that so they can stay bleeding edge.

it still does around 60fps on NFS:MostWanted and FEAR at pretty decent setting, not gunna complain just yet.

I did it with my 6800 and turned it into a 6800GT *granted only 128mb*, but I was rather curious on that point, especially since it doesn't overclock all that well.

Its all there just to get you to spend more money then you really need to

Not only did you guys only use an X850 XT, but an FX-51 socket 940 test system with registered memory, what the heck happened?
