Anyone know if there's a good AGP video card that would be good for mining. Seems like most are pci-e.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

Ya, a 4XXX card is about all you're going to get out of AGP.  Better to invest in a PCI-E board and upgrade.

I'm asking because I have a few older computers that just have AGP slots that I could upgrade

Any standard PCI slots on those boards?  There are PCI-E to PCI adapters available.  PCI bandwidth is more than enough for this purpose.
