LOL the biggest conspiracy theory in the day was going from PCIX to PCIE; And oh ya there is a shortage of 1gb ram video cards. More conjecture than anything else.. But you know if you can get the PCIE running on PCI board... you can get real good Dual Xeon PCs all day long from $5 to 15 (they are circa 2000-2005) There is still some interesting things you can do with PCI. You crack me up. RLOL
