Anyone know (know = speculate/educated guess) if the PCIe machines coming out (their motherboards mostly) will be compatiable with the 65nm process by Intel, or dual-core AMD? If I buy a PCIe with AMD on it, I'd like to be able to plop in the new 90nm dual-core AMD, or if I buy Intel PCIe I'd like to plop in the new 65nm CPU (less power consumption, more horses)..
I really hope there will be an AMD with PCIe about the same time as the Intel w/ PCIe

I really wanted a nice upgrade before the launch of Everquest 2
