Any recommendations for a new 1 or 2 U rackmount server that takes two 5V PCI cards?
Needs to be very reliable, dual CPUs, redundant PSU, hardware RAID controller and 2 disks. Has to be a known brand.

Alternatively (since the customer has just bought a brand new PCI-X based server and sawing a notch in the card didn't help) any suggestions on an external box that takes 5V cards, I found this one http://www.magma.com/pci/7slot3233/index.html but a 1U one without capacity for disk drives would be better.

You might want to take a look at this one: http://www1.us.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/pedge_1750?c=us&cs=555&l=en&s=biz&~page=1 It has dual Intel Xeon support, redundant PSU, only one PCI 5V :-( but two PCI 3.3V slots, Raid controller on-board, two disks and only 1U high.

I'll try to look up something for the external box.

Oops, little correction:
For the PCI
2 total: 2 slots on separate PCI buses: either 2 x 64-bit/133MHz PCI-X (3.3V) OR 1 x 64-bit/133MHz PCI-X (3.3V) and 1 x 64-bit/33MHz PCI 5V slot. Only short length (6.875") adapters are supported

Guess they're out of luck, they'll have to buy an old machine from a broker or get one second hand instead. Thanks for trying.
