Good news. I'll be holding on to my GF4 for a year or so longer, And I really want a huge performance boost when I decide to spend a few hundred dollars on a new card. The next generation ATI's seem like just what I'm looking for.

thing is ,.... the next gen GPU's are going to be able to pump a lot more info back to the CPU & they will need PCI express to be able to do it

PCI as it is , is the limiting factor for computers now ..... everything you plug onto the Motherboard is faster than the info pipelines to the CPU ...... causes bottelnecks

with PCI express computers will speed up drmatically , even if the gear you plug onto them doesnt

Well this is good news! Upgrade now and then upgrade in 2005 and you're ready for BoB and everything else. In a month or so I'll retire my Radeon 9600 Pro and purchase a 9800 Pro, which will in reality double up the performance. I'll be able to play in perfect! I'll be able to run Half-Life 2 and Doom 3.

Don't forget the PCI-express R423 chip coming out a little later than the R420

AAlso, looks like PCI-express is here in June

So when Diogenes perceived that he was greatly excited and quite keyed up in mind with expectancy, he toyed with him and pulled him about in the hope that somehow he might be moved from his pride and thirst for glory and be able to sober up a little. For he noticed that at one time he was delighted, and at another grieved at the same thing, and that his soul was as unsettled as the weather at the solstices when both rain and sunshine come from the very same source.

(Dio Chrysostom "Discourse" 4.77-78)
