    A). I doubt the bandwidth gain will be that big of a deal right now. In the future I'm sure it will make a huge different, though.

    B). Not sure, you could probably get that info from Nvidia's website or MSI's.

    C). Not sure either. It's either cheaper to produce or video card companies are dropping the prices to get everynoe to migrate to PCI/e.

    both NVidia and MSI have info on the PCI Express. as i understand it the bandwidth gains should be very good!
    on points B. & C. i would check with the manufacturer.
