Since graphics are not such a big deal to me, I haven't been keeping an eye on 
the issues.  I know that PCI Express was tipped to be something to watch, but 
that was a good while ago.  Since I haven't seen much mention of it recently 
I wondered if it was another thing that hadn't lived up to the promise.  The 
last thing I want to do is spend a couple of hundred pounds only to find that 
an agp card with lower ram would have done the same job.

It does seem attractive.  The only downside to that is having to do a rebuild 
after the course starts.
