Bring on the speed, this will be even better with fiber optics.

SSDs will be moving to PCIe soon and this will make a great external device, with a portable OS option this would be very useful.

Good news. This will probably open new lights for AMD and nVidia in the dedicated graphic cards options. The biggest market for this will be the nettops and laptops. I can see a GeForce GTX 580 attached to a laptop with this technology. I'm pretty sure though that if high-performance e-PCIe graphic cards will require external AC though... but better dedicated than on-board graphic cards could run with the power of the port itself (like USB), it would be good too... but high-performance? Not too sure.

Blazing Installs (aka: How fast did you install?)
So, I just performed a clean install. After formating the hard drive and preparing everything I clicked the install button. From that point to when Windows opened for the first time was 12 minutes. How fast have you installed?
