How long will it be before AGP and PCI are totally eliminated. Also will PCI Express be backwardly compatible with standard PCI cards. I have an Audigy 2 and I really dont want to have to get rid of such a wonderful card.
Surely the new standard will provide at least one of the old legacy standards and gently phase them out instead of just completely stopping them. Whilst this is fine for new computers, its not going to be good news for those who want to upgrade their motherboard only to find that they will need to change their soundcard, Video Editing and TV tuner card and graphics cards.
