well i finally worked it out, and im gonna buy a 8800gt. i found a few on newegg, and it says there PCI express 2.0 compatibable, will they still work on PCI-e 16x? and when are PCI-e 2.0 mobos going to become availabe?

heres the card. Newegg.com - XFX PVT88PYDF4 GeForce 8800GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

also, does anyone know when the 8800GT core revision is going to come out?

It should work in a PCI E 2.0 slot. What do you mean by core revision?

Yes, it will work in a PCIe x16 slot just fine. It will run at x16 speed instead of PCIe 2.0s x32 speed, but you probably wouldn't notice the difference anyways.

That's the GTS, not the GT. They only just released the 8800GT.
