    Only nVidia knows for sure, but it might be a while and the board makers will have to bear the cost of a PCI-E to AGP bridge chip, so its likely they'll be more expensive.

      If I remember correctly from the articles I've read, nVidia isn't actually making AGP 6600s. Instead, nVidia will make use of a PCI-E to AGP bridge that will allow you to use PCI-E cards on AGP boards, and possibly vice versa. No idea when they're coming out.

        They should be out next month (November) but certainly before Christmas.
