Default AMD 64 bit processors and PCI-Express

I've decided to hold out for PCI-Express and was wondering how much longer until high end ati/nvidia cards are PCI-Express. Ontop of this, are there any mother boards out that support dual PCI-express x16 buses for two Geforce 6800 ultra cards ;D? I'd like to stick with an AMD 64 bit processor, hopefully the FX-55 is also out by the time the motherboard and video cards show up, that'd be nice. Oh also, lets say the motherboard has AGP 8x and PCI-express x16, can you still use dual 6800 ultra's? That'd be interesting, although i'd rather stick with dual 6800 ultra PCI-express.

All the high end cards are already made in pci express and you can get them now if you want an intel. If not you will have to wait for AMD, they currently don't have a pci express board on the market.
