AGP vs. PCI Express for Pinnalce Liquid Edition?

  1. I notice that the Pinnalce Liquid Edition editing software recommends an AGPx8 graphics card.

    Does this mean I cannot have a PCIe card? The mobo I want is a PCIe and I need to use a PCIe graphics card--but I want to make sure this will not have any negative effect if I'm using Pinnacle LE.

    Any help is appreciated!

    They probably just listed what was the fastest at the time of the READ-ME & it was AGP-8x. It shouldn't give you problems if you use it with a PCI-e card (unless specifically noted in the manual).

    Have you tried sending them an Email just to make sure ?

    As did said...

    As Didou said I would have to say the same, PCI-e is very new and even some programs that were built to run with PCI-e you will find there in nothing about PCI-e in the readme files. This is because they will build a probram to work with something even if it does not make it in the computer world... Eg Intel's BTX case that no-one wants to buy. With PCI-e there is little that won't work with it it is when you get into SLI settings when running two cards that you are going to have some problems... PCI-e and SLI have been around for some time in the super computer world and most operating systems have supported it but I realy would not kill you to cover your buttox and Fire an Email off to see if it will work.
