9800 pro's are already available for under £130. And considering how well it runs a game like Far-Cry, this is a very cheap price indeed.I totally agree, i'm just happy as when they start coming out i'll be able to put my hands a cheaper high end card like the Nvidia 5950 or the 9800Pro

That may be true but giving that the bandwidth of 8x AGP, which has been around for a while now,is only now beggining to be utilised fully by Nivida and ATI (see the performance jump in the 6800 range from 5900 while still using the 8x AGP) dosn't, in my eyes at least, make full native speed use as big a selling point as ATI are tryign to make it.It's looking like nVidia's first batch of PCIX cards will have a bridge to the PCIX slot on the motherboard which suggests they could be modified AGP hardware which cannot match native PCIX speeds.
