I just read this at ASUS's site:

64-bit PCI slots are backwards compatible and also support 32-bit PCI cards or peripherals.

How can this be possible when the slots aren't the same shape????

Way to go Asus. Now that we are on the subject I actually pulled out my Abit mobo manual the other day and you have no idea how many typo's they have in there. You'd think that something that technical would be a little more...uhhh, quality. But they make some stupid mistakes. And if I didn't already know what they were talking about I would have been totally lost. ahhhhh, the IT industry...go figure.
