Default nForce 4 chipset announced

http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets...oc.aspx?i=2175

it has pci express support, but no word on an extra agp slot like VIAs K8T890 or whether it will use DDR or DDR2 ram . . .

Can still use cards like ATI Radeon 9800 Pro on PCI Express? How much will this be?

Edit: I'm quite confused... How fast is 1 GHz HT? I thought the motherboards were going to cost a little bit more.
