You are correct, some components are there but the motherboard manufacturers have not stepped up and delivered MBs using PCI express yet. So we wait. Look on the bright side, when they do have the motherboards out we won't be waiting on any of the other hardware. LOL

The reason PCI Express has not been released yet is because graphics card companies have been working on AGPx8 based GPU's for a long time (AGPx8 is still fairly new), as the GeForce 6800 is AGP.

Expect to see an AGPx8 ATI card for this generation - although ATI have been talking about PCI Express a lot more; hence the "ATI and PCI Express" text you see all over their site.

Only time will tell.

Yeah, both ATi and Nvidia are releasing AGP and PCI Express versions of their cards

PCI Express is still a good ways off of becoming mainstream, probably not until late this year will they become mainstream
