I don't quite understand what you're saying. *scratches head*. The more lanes you got flowing to that CPU the better, so a new x32 lane PCI bus would be a whole lot better then x16.

But folks what I really want is an AGP Express slot. AGP is really good as it is on 8X, but imagine carryign that all the way to x16 or x32 or somewhere in between.

Also, check this really sweet Physics Processing Supply Unit, or PPSU. The Ageia PhysX. Check this link out and see what this baby can do.

Probably fake. They could've just put another PCI-E card underneath it to create the illusion that the slot is that big. the PCB itself is probably like that...nVIDIA always has big PCBs for their cards.

Why is there a spot at the top to plug it into a slot? Inverted slots now?

It's for SLI, so you can connect two cards (must be of the same brand and core) for more power.

In my opinion, it's just for bragging rights and is a waste of money. No games in the market fully utilize SLI's complete power.

CrossFire is ok. Also a waste of money.

But I love ATI's Anti-Aliasing...oh baby...

32x PCIe is old news. I heard they're working on 64x.
