    Hi Guys:

    I was just talking to a local computer shop and he advised me to hold off for a couple of weeks. He was talking about PCI Express technology and how it will blow the other AGP away.

    What do you think of his comment?

    Well the current cards that are out are no better than the Agp cards out there right now, However if you want a good upgradeable system(I think I remeber you saying that) then yes you can wait for the NForce4 motherboards, they will be a bit more expencive though upping your budjet by mabey $100 depending on who you go with...

    If you are considering this I would Recomend the Neo4 Platnium/SLI
    If you haven't noticed MSI seems to domminate the Athlon 64 line of motherboards.

    Waiting for nForce 4 boards with SLI would be smart as you would have a lot of upgradability both with your card and board.

    Have a look at the SLI review over at Tom's Hardware: http://www.tomshardware.com/graphic/20041123/index.html

    Mind you they havent tested it with the 6600GT yet...

    Be warned that to many lights can cause strain on your eyes in low light situations or after prolonged exposure.
