    PCIE != PCIX
    PCIE = new thing/PCI Express
    PCIX is a server type extended PCI slot. Cards for them look like a normal PCI card plus another chunk about the same length as the inner chunk (and fit in a PCI slot just hanging over... trust me it's killing my RAID0 Raptors' bandwidth!). They're primarily for RAID cards... although quite a few gigabit lan cards are PCIX based.

    Anyways just one of my pet peeves...

    You get plenty of SATA ports anyways and since they're on the southbridge they should have all the bandwidth they need. 1x slots will be for sound cards and TV tuners anyways, RAID cards will likely be on 4x slots (like PCIX probably only on server boards)
