have installed a new Dell Poweredge 2950, but on ordering i did not include a PCI riser card. After noticing my error i contacted dell and they quickley dispatched said riser card. Unfortunatley the PCI card (Adaptec 2944w) does not fit it.I have a newer Adaptec Card (39160) that fits ok but that has an extra slot in the connector bus. have i made another error? Are there several types of PCI cards?

Hope you can help
