i am learning this is my first rig BUILT and i am damn proud of it. in am in the maching now 1150 dollors so i figure why not max the maching out. i have exspendable money$$$. so money not the issue here. i am not going to buy a new mobo.newmobo=new rig. so i figure if i can get the best performance out of this thing with it lasting 2-4 years. i was running a p3 1ghz 4x agp. SO THIS IS A MAJOR JUMP IN PERFORMANCE!! . me and my friend are building a lan center. for more cash. on the side of normal job. if i am in the maching this much money then why not more? what is the max bandwith for 8x pci exspress. so i also too want to kick my friends dell socket 478B AGP8X HARD CUZ HE THINKS HIS INTEL IS BETTER THAN MY AMD. so after that said yes i am stubborn. @ times and i am thinking of getting next week a 7950gtx just for the hell of it 2 pwn his ass harder.

plzplzplz write out short words like "at" instead of @, it makes the posts easier to read, and please make an effort to proofread. 16x is 4GBps, 8x is 2GBps, but since data can flow both ways on the pci-e bus at once, thats 8GB for the 16x.

You won't be able to build anything right now that will last you 2-4 years and run the newest games that come out. In 2007, DX10 will come out together with Vista, and at some point (I am guessing by the end of 2007 or so), games will require DX10, and compatible hardware.

Right now, no video card you can buy supports DX10. My suggestion is to wait a bit, just get a single 7900GT for now, and upgrade to SLI DX10 cards when they come out.
