    This is excellent news! People always want me to get them a new graphics card, and invariably dell forgot to give them an agp of pci-e slot. I'd have to settle for a 9250 or 5500, and now, assuming you can find it, they can probably play newer games at low settings.

    wtf? This is like 3 month old news. When I went and bought a mouse at the beginning of summer, I saw like 10 of them on the shelves at Fry's Electronics. I only remember it because I was trying to see what was decent and cheap in the realm of pci graphics. $130 isn't cheap enough for me :)

    The only thing I would use PCI for is my sound card, since I don't have any form of pci-express.. I doubt it's bottlenecking anything. just a soind card. 33mb/sec should be sufficant for sound.

    I bet PCIx4 would suffice for most graphics, but I'm no expert - this card is great for those who want openGL, and lightweight DX, like Google Earth. Gamers, stay away.

    CSS isn't demanding at all. My friend can get 30-40 FPS @ 1280x1024 w/ GMA...not bad but quality isn't great.
