ATI Radeon HD 2400 and 2600 will go AGP - but 6 weeks later

Good news for folks with old AGP systems as AMD is planning to roll out AGP version of the ATI Radeon HD 2600 (RV630) and Radeon HD 2400 (RV610) GPUs.

However, you'll have to wait a bit longer as the availability of these cards will follow six weeks after the availability of the PCI Express parts, FUD Zilla reports:
ATI already sent design kits for PCIe cards a while ago and the partners are still expecting design kits for the AGP cards. The PCIe version naturally has the priority but it will be followed by an AGP invasion.

So you will be able to experience the full Vista including DirectX 10 experience on your old AGP only system. We are not sure if ATI will make a PCI version of the RV610, but we see no reason why it should not.
