hey guys, a quick question, is the x600 any good? my very annoying friend keeps telling me it sucks and was discontinued after 2 months only. But anyway I only use it to play games none of the extreme stuff you guys described...

Btw, I hear that the pci is useless as no video card can create enough data to make use of the pci express extra bandwidth...

PCI and PCI-E are different buddy. Ok here it goes

PCI=1x
AGP=4x/8x
PCI-E=16x

See the speed difference? But no, no game can take advantage of it.
