http://www.extremetech.com/article2/0,3973,903746,00.asp INTEL is adopting PCI Express for its larger bandwidth capacity. Expect the new chipset out within the year. One reminder however. the 440LX sucked... it was the BX that made AGP very popular. Unless your the type that likes to pay the Cutting Edge Tax, i'd sudgest waiting untill the second or third revision of chipsets with the PCI Express bus become availible. The real question is... Do you buy that brand new ATI Radeon 9700 Pro now that you know the entire bus of your system can soon be alot faster?
