That's more of what I'm leaning toward. I've heard the PCI-E ports are a LOT faster than even the 8x AGP. If I'm gonna' spend several hundred for a vid card it had better be a good one that'll last a few years!

I think I will pick up Civ IV on Tuesday since a CD I want comes out than also.
Good luck finding it! We've had shortages and even Amazon doesn't have it very often :(
Civ IV is more like a Civ II update than Civ III. A lot of the Civ II things that they did away with in III are back in the game. The biggest change that I've seen is the government types. Instead if one government class (republic, monarchy, etc.) there are five phases of "Civics" - leader type (monarchy, representative, etc.), bureaucracy type, economy, religion (pagan, theocracy, etc), and individual freedoms (slavery, serfdom, free speech, etc.). And it's a whole different game with religion thrown in there!
