pci in poweredge 2600

will using a standard pci card in a pci-x slot affect the onboard controller?  I know it will slow down the bus speed at the slots

You may just want to try the card and test the performance before and after.

You can use a tool like this:

to measure the performance of the disks before and after.  That'll help you evaluate if adding the card is worth the performance hit.

You don't want to put anything in that slot other than a true PCI-X supported card

The 2600 has 6 other PCI slots for you to use, are these all used up?
