I've looked high and low to find out when ati's x800 xt (pe) pci express boards would be shipping and the only evidence i've found is "late june." here it is almost mid-july and i've seen nothing. does anyone have any clue when they will be shipping?

I was wondering the same thing. I was going to wait for a good PCI Express motherboard and get a X800 XT (PE) PCI-e card, but I think I'll just wait until late next year when I hear how the whole PCI Express thing is going. Plus, I want to see how other PCI-e cards are going to be priced (if they're all going to be expensive or not), like sound cards and so on.

As of now, I'm pretty much sold on an Asus A8V, A64 3500+, and X800 XT (AGP). :twisted: Can't wait to have the money for it.

I wouldn't worry about it d00d. Unless you got tons of money to throw away to even be able to use the card you have to upgrade everything. From what I notice only boards that have PCIE6x are:

Intel LGA775 boards.

You'll have to rebuy your memory because they use DDR2 modules.
You'll have to rebuy your CPU because it uses land-array-grid.

And it is quite expensive upgrade too for new technology. I would let it go for the time being and let people "test" out the new stuff and wait for a second gen product to mature.

The i915 chipset supports both DDR and DDR2, often on the same motherboard.

The i915 supports PCI-E, DDR, and DDR2.

And Crucial has plenty of DDR2.

Check out newegg buddy. They got plenty of DDR2 modules. Crucial, Corsair, I think Kingston and samsung...

Check out hardocp.com and they got the ABIT AA8 board reviewed with the DDR2/PCIE, etc...
