My confusion was I thought there was a PCIe card that had similar
specs. I could use these. PCI-X I could still use but only on
older/slowe systems. In either case this is for work.
At home I am trying to reduce the number of drives and swap other
drives out to reduce the cost of power. I know a drive costs 75 cents
a month to power so I should not be that worried though but I do have
7 of them in my myth system..
