Pretty soon video cards will be seperate computers. They will sit on top of CPU towers and have a PCI "bridge card" that goes from the EGP (external graphics processor) to the PC and then out to the monitor, all connected by fiber optic cables or some other ultra-high-speed interface. An EGP will have components which can be easily upgraded (CPU, memory, etc.), therefore extending the life of the ~$1200 device.

But the framerates and the detail........ :woot:

Yes these are called gaming consoles lol.
