Guys, I'm still trying to decide whether to go for an Athlon 64 FX55 (PCIe motherboard soon to be released) or a Pentium 4 HT in which a PCIe is already available. I have looked at some benchmarks in which the P4 seems to come out best. I'm also torn between ATI X800 or an Ultra 6800 vid card. The ATI comes out best in benchmark tests. If I go for the Athlon 64 with the 6800 is this/will this be compatible with the soon to be released PCIe motherboard. On the other hand if I go for the Athlon 64 with the X800, is this comaptible with the non PCIe motherboard. The reason I ask is if I go for the Athlon & 6800 will I be able to slot them into a PCIe motherboard when it is eventually released?? In short I'm after the most powerful of these options. It would seem that the P4 HT with the X800 is the best choice based on benchmark tests. However, I'm slightly lost regarding the current info regarding the PCIe specifications. Normal motherboards (well most) have an AGP (usually 8X) & 5 PCI slots. I need 2 PCI slots for the sound card, 1 for a TV card, 1 for the modem & another depending on the graphics card as the 6800 takes up the AGP slot & a PCI slot. Does the PCIe have an AGP socket & will there be enough slots to accomodate the above.
