I've been watching this since I heard about it on a tech show. It's called PCI Express. From what I've seen so far it will make most PCI and maybe some AGP cards worthless. It will also allow any gamer very happy or anyone that likes to create a massive gaming computer.

Heres a link to Intels site they have info on it.

There are some videos on what its about. the videos give some technical info on what exactly PCI express does. Here is the link.

WinXP, AMD Athlon XP 2400+ w/512 meg , Geforce 256 DDR 32megs AGP video.

These new graphics cards go one better. This on Slashdot, http://arstechnica.com/news/posts/1084398037.html Being able to run two graphics cards in parallel on the same board.

Imaging the graphics. Of couse this is only on Alienware. But if it takes off, it will not be long until it filters down to all mainboards.
