I have a supermicro board that has a 64 bit PCI-X slot (NOT PCI Express). You can see the details here

I am wondering if these slots are backwards compatible with a regular PCI card.

Your help is appreciated. Thanks

The PCI-X bus is not compatible with the older 5-volt cards but newer 3.3-volt PCI cards will work in a PCI-X slot.
