Will PCI express work with any PCI slot or do you need a new mobo that has a special PCI-E slot? I am asking this because i al look ing at the 6600GT card. I know they are coming out with a AGP version later but this question has been bothering me. Thanks for any answers.

PCI-E is a new slot, so yes, need new mobo. the new Intel boards (socket 775) have PCI-E Slots.

why could'nt they have named it something else. It's just going to confuse some people.

because when you buy your pci-e 6600GT and realize you cant use it on your motherboard you'll be forced to buy a new motherboard+cpu+memory+power supply.
