The 9500 is only SATA-I not SATA-II, though I'm not sure there'll be
any noticeable difference if you're using a 32bit slot.  They're
claiming a 200% performance increase with the 9550 over the 9500 though,
so it might be a better option for the future (there seem to be more
desktop boards with PCI-X slots nowadays - it seems to be a pretty cheap
option to add a PCI-X bridge when they've already got PCI express
