You are going to want PCI 2.0 when the 98xx series cards come out. The 88xx series does not really take advantage of the extra bandwidth, but the new ones MIGHT. that is not for certain.

I was saying, if you are going to upgrade your graphics card soon, as in, before you get another motherboard, then you will want something with PCI 2.0.

If you have the money, get the maximus

Oh, oops. Which one out of these?
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

Oh, crap. Is it that thing where it goes to the homepage because it can't post searches?

I agree with Prophet, the Quad GT is a personal Fav of mine great for higher end budgets w/ PCIe 2.0
