Are their any pci express motherboards out yet? Thinking about making a
seperate system based on those and getting an 6600 gt for it.

There are at least four NForce 4 chipset motherboards available (all with
PCI express). ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI and Epox are the ones I've seen. Try
Newegg.com. Keep in mind these boards require the AMD64 (754 or 939 pin)
processor.

Hi,

I wouldn't worry about getting a PCI-Express motherboard right now, give it
6-12 months to *bed in* a little bit. Unless you wanna set-up a SLI 6800
set-up for top FPS I think you can sit this one out and be happy with your
Socket 754. Talking about Socket 754 I don't think I heard of any
motherboard that has PCI-Express? I'm sure this will change though.

As far as I know AMD intend to make Socket 939 their main focus, and I heard
socket 754 was gonna be the future *value* platform (i.e: Duron/Sempron).
