    Literally, not sarcastically you can saw off the PCI-X portion to allow a card to function in a PCI slot. I've done it before with a PCI-X NIC while in college.

    When "we don't log user activity" is a selling point you know it's rough. It's like a restaurant's main selling point being "we don't shit in your coffee"
