Default GeForce 6800 Ultra AGP Card plugs into a PCI Express slot?

Does anyone know if it is true that the Nvidia Geforce 6800 Ultra AGP card will also fit into a PCI Express slot? I remember hearing something about that. Does anyone here have more info about that? Thanks

Are U hoping that AGP is somehow compatible with PCI express? It's not they are totally different interfaces, different connector and protocol.

nVidia will have a PCI express version of the 6800 of course it just so happens the AGP version was demo'ed first.

I was wondering because If I buy the Geforce 6800 Ultra AGP card and then upgrade my Motherboard next year to a pci express board then I would be stuck with a great video card that would not work! And the problem is I need a new video card very soon. Understand when i am saying. I can't go but the pci express version of the geforce 6800 because I will not be upgrading my motherboard untail sometime next year. But I really would like too upgrade my Geforce 3 TI 200 too the Geforce 6800 Ultra!

If you buy a new mobo, most of them comming out with PCI express would probably still include a AGP port. That's just my opinion, it might not be possible, so they might not do it. But I think that they wouldn't force you to buy a PCI express card when you also buy the board

I will be upgrading too a AMD Athlon 64 Socket 939 PCI Express Board! If it also has an AGP slot that would be cool!

It almost looks like the PCI express slots could host an AGP. Strange. Just got the clipy thingy on the wrong side. Lol

Looks like the VIA K8T890 will have both AGP and PCI Express!

That VIA chipset looks tempting, but I want to see what NVIDIA comes up with for its PCI Express boards.
