Thanks ^_^. Well there is nothing in the PCI-E 2.0 price range that is in the PCI price range. On top of that its so new I don't really consider it a major slot type. Otherwise I could've done AGP 2X.
I really like this idea. I mean up until a year ago I knew nothing about graphics cards and up until 3 months ago I knew nothing about computer hardware (I learn rather fast I guess) so when it comes to hardware the first thing people usually get into is RAM and video cards. The most confusing thing about video cards for newbies is easily the slot types so I think this is a good way to show just what the big deal is.
I feel like its kind of wasted here though as most of the people here know all about this but its good for reference I guess. Maybe I'll look into posting this somewhere with more newbies.
P.S. Sticky would be nice ^_^.
