    It's too bad that G5's don't have PCI Express slots...

    PCI X and PCI Express are two different things, Express is much faster.

    Ya you guys are confused. PCI Express is not PCI-X.

    PCI-X is a successor to PCI. PCI-Express is a successor to AGP.

    edit: This site should help explain things better than I ever could...
