Default Will pci x16 be used for all expansion products

Or will it just be used for a video card?

i dont think soo....mainly becasue nothing else really needs to go that fast...maybe if they made pci 4x slots for sound cards and other stuff that could speed things up but i think that pci16x would be rediculous for just stuff like sound cards...lan cards..etc. but u never know!!!

Who knows, as technology becomes more demanding of bandwith you might eventually see things like sound cards start using PCI-e but that would mean that they would have to start including more PCIe slots on a motherboard. I don't think that will be happening any time soon. PCIe will continue to be solely for video cards for a long time.

Maybe in a few years, PCI-e will be old, and they will make a new type of slot, and PCI-e will be the new PCI...

Who knows...

At the end of the day, no-one knows about tomorrow's technology. Who knows, tomorrow, someone might come up with something amazing, like a computer the size of a mobile phone or something mad like that.

But to have PCI-e 16x sound cards would be nice, if that sort of speed was to be used for sound cards etc, imagine the speed of new video cards.

Exactly. Kind of makes things more exciting I think.
