Re: +10 to dirty hardware
My guess is that PCI express will be around for awhile. whether it be in X16 or whatever they come up with next. I also think that USB will be around too, maybe not 2.0 because I've heard talk of wireless USB but I do think that USB will be around for awhile.
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
