What is PCI Express? Is it for a non gamer!!

  matt-few 21:27 27 Oct 2004

I need to change my computer soon, and have gone for a PCI Express based P4 machine. However the graphics cards available Ati XT800 and nVidia 6800 seem over the top for someone who uses a graphics card for watching dvd's and for video editing and effects with Pinnacle Studio 9

Would it not be better for me to stay with a non pci express machine?

yes...the only people the PCI express cards are aimed at are serious hardcore gamers...so unless you have stacks of games at home and always buy the latest ones when they arrive then I wouldnt go for PCI-Express...have a browse at click here for graphics cards...your best bet would be either Nvidia 6 Series or 5700 series...
