the PCI-E 16x slot is for graphics, while the other PCI-E 1x slots are for your other cards, the same sorts of cards you use in normal PCI, but it will be faster
Ahh I See! Stupid me, I completely forgot that they were also trying to make PCI-E standard completely for all PCI based devices...for some reason my brain was stuck on the fact that it's just PCI-E replacing AGP slot, forgot about the Old school PCI slots being those slots are tiny! I can't wait until that becomes mainstream and you start seeing a lot of PCI-E components.....they are just making it all uniform I guess...You got PCI-E 16x, then PCI-E Normal, then your old school PCI Slot next to those...sheesh....that'd be one hell of a machine.
