The PCI cards aren't bottlenecked from what i have read. The cards aren't utilizing the full 16x speeds. Techies are buying PCI express motherboards to prepeare for future video cards that will be able to use the technology. PCI express is the the future.
As far as a motherboard. Here. $48 and can handle a 800fsb 478 chip.
