There are also 3,3V only AGP slots (which can't support almost all newer GPUs), and lastly, if you have for example 440BX board - chances are you will OC AGP slot to get higher FSB (133MHz).
OC'ing AGP slot past stock 66MHz doesn't work with some cards (both bridged and non-bridged ones).

In summary : The fastest AGP card overall, usually isn't the fastest for a given AGP board (or settings you are using).

Anyone have a list of the fastest 3.3V and 1.8V AGP cards?

The fastest card you can get for 3.3V AGP is Galaxy GeForce 7950GT.

I must be some kind of standard: the anonymous gangbanger of the 21st century.

Was the Galaxy GeForce 7950GT a unique GeForce 7950GT ? The pictures I can find of GeForce 7950GT cards don't look like they have the 3.3V cut.

Edit -- Ahh, I found a picture of it, yes, I see what you mean. It does have the cut. Wow! That's got to be quite the collectible. How is the compatibility with old boards?

p.s. Here are some good benchmarks detailing the 3850 AGP vs 4670 AGP

Well, it works on 440BX. Galaxy also made 7900GS without a fancy shroud.

Yeah, but it's only 12pp/5vu and has horrible memory. So only mildly better than 6600GT with universal AGP.
