Yes.

There will be four variations: crap, enthusiast, SLI, Pro (SMP, possible SLI). So yes...but for a premium.

PCI-E will be used for more than just graphics. In addition, it's full duplex, which has proven somewhat-to-very useful for nVidia's video processor. PCI-E will also be the first format that ATi and nVidia will release their future cards. So if you want the best first, PCI-E is necessary. PCI-E can also supply a lot more power (especially in the upcoming 150W Pro version), which gets rid of the need for an extra power connector on some cards.

PCI-E isn't just AGP that has twice the bandwidth...(well, it *theoretically* has quadruple, but w/e)
