Default nforce 4 motherboard & PCI-E

I'll be buying a new pc very soon, somewhere around 7 dec I'll be buying my pieces online.. now, I saw on a couple of forums the nforce 4 motherboard is already available in country's like Germany... can someone tell me when they will come in Belgium? (as exact as possible please)

IF I buy a nforce 4 motherboard I of course need to buy a PCI-E graphical card... I was looking around on belgium site's and didn't see one (X800 pro or geforce 6800 GT that is) does someone know a belgium site where I can buy them? (I mostly checked hofline & forcom, cheap and good sites)
Or are they going to be available if the nforce 4 motherboard comes to belgium?

If I look to the german sites.. I only see that Radeon X800pro has some PCI-E cards.. what about the Geforce 6800 GT? I don't see them online.. I prefer to buy a Geforce 6800 GT card (from reviews)

SLI is two graphical cards in one PC yeh? Well I don't know if I need that... it could be handy if I buy a new card later you put them together for more graphical power though... why asking?

About that X800XT card.. 500 is too much for me.

you got the MSI A939A K8N Neo4 Diamond that has 2 PCI-E slots.
30-70% increase in FPS in modern games if you use SLI.
you could buy one 6800GT and upgrade later.
one thing, the cards must have the same Bios and modelnr, or it's a no go.

haven't seen a PCI-E GT just yet, wait untill next month or so.

you mean you already have the nforce 4?

@ Gamer: if I'm correct that SLI is very good for in the future?
and about the fact the 2 cards on SLI need to have the same bios and modelnr, mostly the same if you have 2 radeon's or 2 geforce's?

This X800XT is maybe intersting for the use of PCI-E? : http://www.e-bug.de/cgi-ssl/preise.c...=16154&piname='Sapphire+256MB+Radeon+X800+XT+PCI-E+LRTL'&hbestnr='1174245

but.. the x800 xt is like the Geforce 6800 ultra right? but how's it possible that that x800 only costs 430 when a geforce 6800 GT on that site also costs around 420-430?

and on the same site a x800 pro also costs around 430, huh???
though.. not many pro's have PCI-E, mostly the XT's, but can someone please explain me the diference between a x800 pro and a x800 xt, because I though XT is like the ultra of geforce 6800

nope, that the nforce4 is already anounced. in the old day's it took a year before a new chipset came out for the same socket

x800pro --> 475 core 475 mem 12 pipelines
x800 xt --> 500 core 500 mem 16 pipelines
x800 xt pe--> 520 core 575 mem 16 pipelines

numbers may be wrong (xt's mem speeds most likely) but I'm too lazy too look it up and you get the picture no doubt.
