Until we get our hands on boards nearer the end of the month, it's hard to comment on them past regurgitating what's in the press kit for today's launch at Quakecon. On the face of it, they look like the boards to ease any transition to PCI Express, offering high performance for not too much money. The 6600 GT appeals the most, for just ?50 more than the slower, less-capable 6600.
NVIDIA say that PCI Express demand is highest, so all NV43 GPUs produced at the momemnt are being allocated to the creation of PCI Express boards, the majority of which are being sold to OEM customers, so it might be a little while before retail 6600, even on PCI Express, can be found, and it's also the reason a bridged AGP version isn't being released concurrently.
