looking through newegg today i stumbled upon their first mobo with PCI-Express support....atleast for sale there. Unfortunetly it has no AGP and is an Intel mobo....i'm all for AMD. But it will only be a short time before a 939 board comes out with PCI-Express, then i'll be buying up.

Yeah, My next build will be an Athlon 64 w/ PCI-Express nVidia 6800 Ultra. Hopefully PCI-Express AMD mobo's will be out soon because I want to build it for Doom 3!

the inquirer.net or whatever had a article on Nvidia working on the next nforce chipset that will incorporate all the new stuff that is out now on the board. So only time will tell.

Don't expect AGP on the new Intel boards that have PCIE ability. If it does have PCIE and an AGP slot, it's almost a dead giveaway that it's a budget board.

I'm also hoping AMD gets on the PCIE wagon. Not so sure that they need DDR2 yet, but it should hurt to get it into the implimentation stages.
