Unhappy The Next FX

i have heard alot of chat about the new wave of graphics cards coming from nvidia and ati and just wondering is this all true or are they talking about the pci versions . Cause i just brought a fx 5900 and if there is a new card coming out i could have waited to buy it.

no, the next cards will be PCI Express, the latest version of PCI, faster than agp and anything before. If your thinking of getting one, DONT!. they are still experimental!

PCI Express? AGPs are connected directly to the RAM; how can a PCI be faster, even an experimental one?

Wow, the PCI express will be interested!

The PCI bus can handle more data than the AGP port so they may have that in mind.
