These are cards are VERY thin and small (at least what I saw up close and personal with Nvidia's this week) so it should be possible to get them into a T&L.
Nvidia said you might not be able to get the top of the line cards that are meant for the DTR's, but there should be some pretty good choices available.

So that brings the question, who cares if it's PCI-Express? PCI-Express for graphics has no performance improvements. In fact, even top-of-the-line graphics cards, if I recall correctly, run just as fast on AGP-4x as AGP-8x. With PCI-Express having the unidirectional bandwidth of what would be AGP-16x, it's overkill with no benefits.
Now, the PCI-Express solution that is scheduled to replace PCMCIA, that's something. As are PCI-Express slots for expansion cards, as the PCI bus is a dog.
But PCI-Express for graphics, whoop-tee-doo, it has a zero-performance increase, and I have zero-interest.
