My Final Plan


This Case and Mobo should be fine, im going to keep it the way it is and im going to save up for a new comp when PCI-Express and 64 Bit go Mainstream big time (around the same time)By then I can get a nice 64Bit and PCIX Comp. All I need do now is get rid of this damn Wireless Net. I can save 200 not buying the mobo and such and that goes along way toward a new comp. When do you think PCIX and 64Bit will go mainstream? A Year?

PCI express is supposed to start showing up late this summer or fall. As for it and 64bit computing going "mainstream", well, that depends on what you mean by mainstream. If by mainstream you mean 50% or more of home users have it, then that's probably a good 18 months to 2 years away at the rate most people update their machine. Remember, most people aren't gamers who always want the fastest thing just because it's the fastest thing. Most people want the cheapest thing, because it's the cheapest thing.

I really don't see why you need it to go mainstream anyway. I'd just wait until PCI express is out and you can get a decent video card to go with it. Remember, PCI express is meant to replace AGP, so your PCI express board probably won't have an AGP slot for your existing video card.

Any bio the 775 socket (now know as socket T) will support the 64bit chips as soon as they are realeased, all intel will be doing is enabling it inside the CPU, the presscots out now even have a possibllity of being 64bit though its dissabled and incomplete, because they have 2x as many of some little sub assemblies
