Lynx AES16

I thought I heard that the Lynx AES16 PCI card can run in a PCI Express bus(just cain't take advantage of the extra speed? IS this true?

Also, when changing motherboards..etc...do I need to reformat my application hard drive and can I just connect it from the old computer?
New at this PC thing..

you should reformat it, if possible. you can try to put together your new computer and just use the same old drive (with everything installed). due to performance problems with the new chipset I would reinstall everything.

No, this is not true. You need a PCI or PCI-X slot in order to run the AES16. There is a PCIe version that is coming out Q4 of this year.

Hey man.

With windows XP, you must re-format 99.9% of the time. The system won't even boot when you switch most of the time. You will get a blue screen, and it just wont' boot.

Even if it does boot... you absolutely will not get any reliable performance for advanced audio software.

It's just a must to reinstal windows.

Thanks for the replies...couple more questions?

I'm not too happy with the monitoring confusion of the Lynx AES16.
I LOVE the sound of it with the Aurora 8 , but find it stressfull to setup direct monitoring mixes....(I'm using Nuendo 3)

RME's totalmix looks much more impressive as far as direct monitoring is concerned....so how does it stand(sound wise) compared to the Lynx?
Keep in mind, I would still be using the Aurora for AD/DAs.

Any thought/experience?
