    Yes new hardware. :D

    I'm just speculating on an EPoX KT400A motherboard to hit the market to see if I need anymore hardware. :devil win

    Late January/early February accordin' to rumours. :devil:

    Just a thought, but the NV40 could be one of the first major graphics cards to be available with a PCI Express bus.

    PCI Express (PCI-X) will eventually replace the current PCI/AGP bus architechure.

    PCI Express architecture is a state-of-the-art serial interconnect technology that keeps pace with recent
    advances in processor and memory subsystems. From its initial release at 0.8V, 2.5GHz, the PCI Express
    technology roadmap will continue to evolve, while maintaining backward compatibility, well into the next
    decade with enhancements to its protocol, signaling, electromechanical and other specifications. The PCI
    Express architecture retains the PCI usage model and software interfaces for investment protection and
    smooth development migration. The technology is aimed at multiple market segments in the computing and
    communication industries, and supports chip-to-chip, board-to-board and adapter solutions at an equivalent
    or lower cost structure than existing PCI designs. PCI Express currently runs at 2.5Gtps, or 250MBps per
    lane in each direction, providing a total bandwidth of 16GBps in a 32-lane configuration. Future frequency
    increases will scale up total bandwidth to the limits of copper and significantly beyond that via other media
    without impacting any layers above the Physical Layer in the protocol stack. PCI Express provides I/O attach
    points for high-performance graphics, 1394b, USB 2.0, InfiniBand(tm) Architecture, Gigabit networking and so
    on.

    PCI-X 1.0

    PCI-X 66
    PCI-X 133

    PCI-X 2.0

    PCI-X 266 (2.1 Gigabytes per second bandwidth)
    PCI-X 533 (4.3 Gigabytes per second bandwidth)

    PCI-X 3.0

    PCI-X 1066 (8.5 Gigabytes per second bandwidth)
    PCI-X 2133

    notice all the sleek racing marker lines on all the capacitors. Sweet!
    Someday I would like to become knowledgeable so that I could do penance for all the stupid questions I have and have yet to ask.
