I believe PCI-X 2.0 is supposed to be released in late summer. Should make motherboards cheaper. It effectively doubles the bandwidth.

I believe computers will componentize to where there is only one kind of slot for all cards, The slot will run at the same bus speed as the motherboard which should be the same as the CPU bus range. So a 5 gigihertz cpu would have the same bus speed and the graphics card is the same. No more bottlenecks. Whateven speed a component needs it just uses. Think of drop-in sound, video, and memory modules to exactly what you need. All external devices will be plug and play with a SuperUSB connection. Hard drives, cdrom drives, and any other kind of hardware all have the exact same connection to the motherboard. Think about how cheaply they could be made then. $100 computers that will blow away todays super computers. Anything is possible. The only caveat here is the money hungry people will not allow this for a very long time. Eventually one day we will be there.

Lets see, AGP was around for about 10 years, SO!
