  1. There is no such thing as PCI 3.0
    PCI got up to 2.3 and its found on motherboards since 2003 I believe. The Physics card from ASUS requires a 2.2 PCI port so it should run fine on a 2.3

    ok so guess a typo from ASUS :P

    thats good to know

    and what goes for PhysX not worth it, well deticated processor for physics is a lot more than what processor will do for it, you think you gonna get more than a frame per minute if you were to render the graphics a GF8 does but insted software emulated?

    and for sound, guess ill have to get a PCI-E Soundcard hehe^^ im not MADLY sound hungry, a decent 7.1 is good for me, im all for graphics :P
  3. Is there any PCi-Express sound card out there? cuz I dont know of any...
    the normal ones come in PCI.
  4. Oh PCi-Express 1x I thought we were talking about PCi-E 16x or 8x :lol:

    Anyways most people go for audigys in the PCI form :D
