Yeah but if you get 2 x16 slots then you get 6800 SLi!

No they are definetely not compatible with each other, though i did hear Nvidia was making an AGP 8x to PCI-Express bridge solution but thats about it (check here > http://graphics.tomshardware.com/gra...0/pcie-07.html), they are 2 totally different Architechares!!! (cant spell it) try this link > http://graphics.tomshardware.com/gra...310/index.html

The cards cost about the same as their AGP counterparts. Backwards compatibility might be possible since a few companies are trying to make a bridge from PCIe to AGP, but who knows when that'll be done. The video capture applications and 3D rendering possibilities make it useful for professionals, but the standard gamer doesn't need it. And I really don't think SLI is all that great of an idea to revive, a dual-core card would be more economical, useful and faster.
