Another thing came to mind.....I am guessing this x700 Is also pci express? I was just wondering because one vendor made a big deal of advertising that point but others don't mention it. I am just trying to make sure.
However, I do have one concern. In the pics of the MS-1029 innards, the ATI chip looked like it was configured as a discreet chip. So does that mean its pulling its 128 megs of RAM off the main Mem? Or ar the dedicated mem chips on the other side of the x700? just curious.
