Default New ForceWare 9-series and the 7900GS

Well nVIDIA released their new drivers....including the 9-series x64 drivers.

In the release notes I noticed that they "added support for the 7900GS"

Did a quick google on this and it seems as if it's AGP. Even though I'm PCI-Express this still seemed kinda cool because I thought the last nVIDIA AGP card was the 7800GS.

Is this correct? Anyone?

I think its PCI Express and only available to OEMs. I heard a 7600GT AGP may come out soon.

Snip: "Today we had the chance to speak with a very reliable, unofficial source who is very familiar with some of Nvidia’s plans. The same source gave us some news regarding additional members of the GeForce 7 family. Since this source is unofficial, consider the following information as a rumor: 7900GS, 7600GTX, 7600LE and 7300GT."
Then again it doesnt tell us if it's AGP or PCIE.

odd? AGP and SLI?!?!? lol
