I have a Tyan GX28 server with an Areca 1110 PCI-X 64bit/133MHz RAID card. The issue is that the GX28 only has USB 1.1 ports and I'd like to add USB 2.0 ports. I'm pretty sure that I can plug a regular PCI USB 2.0 card into the spare PCI-X card slot but I've read that this will make the PCI-X bus run at the normal PCI speed which will slow down my RAID card horribly.
1. Is it true that putting a regular PCI card on the same bus as the PCI-X 64bit/133MHz RAID card will cause th ebus to run at regular PCI speed?
2. If I'm right, what I need is a PCI-X to USB 2.0 card, are there any out there?
