Do you mean, "anywhere?" or "including this card?"

I mentioned that the reviews on Newegg of the Supermicro card claim
that it can, in fact, be used in a standard PCI slot, which is one
of the reasons I'm considering it.  I figure my ultimate performance
is likely to be limited by either the disk (if I'm using only one at
a time) or the Ethernet connection (even gig-E) anyway (and some of
the hosts on the other end will only be 100MB/sec Etherhet as well).
So hopefully going PCI and not PCI-X (or PCI for one card and PCI-X
for the other, depending on the mobo, etc) won't kill me.  I assume.
