Are there any PCIe compatable devices apart from graphics cards yet?

That's the question. I'm going to build a computer soon and there doesn't seem to be any real point to get PCIe yet. I will only need PCI for a sound card and optical drives I think. AGP also still has plenty of bandwidth. How long will it be until they start to phase out AGP and PCI?

Well I got a cheap(non SLI) PCIe board so I could get the cheaper PCIe version of a graphics card. I figured I might as well try to be future-proof rather than know I have to fork out more cash a year or two down the line.

I dunno anything that's PCIeX1 compatable atm (the replacement for old PCI slots??).
