the cost of PCI Express mobo will be about the same, and then drop down as they become more common just like always, and PCI X video cards, of course there will be budget card, the market wouldnt survive if there wasnt a big price range to encompose all consumers.

The PCI Xpress is a Intel invention isnt it?

Anything similar from AMD? or is this another attempt by Intel to monopolize the market.

be sure not to make that mistake.. PCI X is different from PCI Express.

true, but most people dont even know that there are diferent version of the current PCI tech. so most usually see PCI X as short for PCI Express and as PCI X also being the new great tech.

http://www.nvidia.com/page/geforce_pcx.html Just a link showing the nVidia PCX line up (inlcuding value/mainstream/performance/enthusiast cards). Although these are sold as PCX cards they're essentially just the AGP cards strapped onto an adaptor so they work with PCX motherboards. ATI are the only current company I know to have a true PCX card, but arn't marketting it yet. The huge leap foreward isn't gonna come for a good 6 months to a year from now when we'll get the 2x speed we've all been promised. Still pretty damn exciting though.

Isnt PCI X the 64 bit PCI slots on Commercial and business servers?

We got in old Compaq servers where I used to work and they had 64 bit PCI slots in them, usually holding cacheable SCSI controller cards.

PCI Express is the new bus from Intel that is going to replace PCI and AGP.

My question is I have seen reports that even with 8X AGP the motherboard isnt the bottleneck the GPU on the video card is. Has that situation changed back?

The tests I saw were concerning that between 4X AGP and 8X AGP cards there wasnt a drastic increase in performance even when a potential bottleneck was removed meaning that the AGP bus wasnt where the problem was.

I dont think the GPU is the bottleneck, right now its getting a huge memeory bandwith up to 30 GB per sec. If that was more than todays GPU's could utilize then Intel and others wouldnt try to create tech. that would increase it. PCI X has both 32 and 64 bit versions. PCI X doesnt replace the AGP port PCI Express from Intel is supposed to Replace the AGP and go back to PCI slot only As for the small performance increase between 4X and 8X agp, that is because no game has been written that must have 8X agp. to many people still have 4X so game makers must include support for there older card, to get enough people willing to buy.
