Looks like MSI together with SIS has beaten everybody else out there
with an AMD64 PCIe board:

Well, it's not ATI, it's SIS.

It's not ATI or NV you mean.

I don't see the incentive for any mbrd mfr to do a new 754 mbrd - 754 is
dead.

As for ATI and PCI-Express, the latter is now the most common video card
available; in fact it's getting difficult to find a mid-range AGP 8x card.
Nvidia recently announced AGP 8x for the 6600GT range but from what I see
there's a ~$50. price premium over PCI-Express versions... bridge
circuitry? Not sure how many 6600 AGP cards we're going to see nor at what
price. IOW AGP 8x is dying quickly.:-)

For ATI, they *do* seem to have cleaned their act up somewhat for video
cards, though their Control Panel is not as useful nor overclock friendly
as Nvidia's... and the 3rd party ones are flakey and a risk to system
health. OTOH do you trust Nvidia more, after all the cheating ruckus
between them and Futuremark?

AMD does have Sempron 3100s in Socket 754 packaging, and 754 may last
for a while longer in the value, low end segment (until if AMD decides
to release Semprons for 939)

The 754 is likely to last a long time in the low end segment. It's a
cheaper package and the single memory bus is a significant differentiator
from the higher end parts.

Actually, the MSI board uses the new ATI Radeon CPU chipset and the Asus
uses the SIS760GX chipset with the new 965L southbridge.

....which features AGP 8x, PCIe X1, and two PCI!
