Since Toms Hardware hasn't published the second part of the article on the 939Dual-SATA2 AGP VS. PCI-E with the dual core CPU, I decide to do it myself.
Not only did I run the tests on the 939Dual-SATA2 with the 3850 PCI-E and the 3850 AGP, I also ran the tests on an Asrock AliveDual-eSATA2 which is the AM2 version of the 939Dual-SATA2 except for having a nforce3 southbridge instead of a ULi M1567 southbridge.
And also, I ran the test with Windows XP instead of the resource hog named VISTA.
To view the benchmarks, Please visit the following website:

Please note: I will not run benchmarks on the game Crysis because I refuse to pay for a game or download a game that I can't stand.

Thanks for the complement.
I usually get hounded when I mention the word "AGP", but I'm a little surprised no one said a negative word about it.
