Yes. Graphics card on PCI are noticeably slower than on AGP. You can feel it.
I even tested PCI-express card through a PCI to PCIe adapter, And I switched back to my Radeon 9700 Pro which is much faster and have full 3D support. It also can handle 2K resolutions with no issue.
So the PCI cards are only better for more video RAM to show more windows and screens? This would be good but if it is slower then it is not a good change. I think I only have AGP Radeon 9200P or so. Is it also faster then PCI cards?
