PCI X esata card question

I just purchased a JBOD which I will be using esata to connect to.  The machine I am using only has PCI - X slots.  As per the manufacturer I need to use the silicon image 3132 chipset, and not the 3124.  I can not find a pci X 3132 chipset esata card.

I am wondering if anyone has any ideas of any card that I have missed.

Depending on your machine you can use a PCI.
With PCI you can only get SAT I speeds, with a DELL power edge 2900 you can't use this option as Dell has the PCI X slot modified and won't accept a PCI card

The only cards with the 3132 chip I found are PCIe

that was what I had found too.  Thanks for clarifying..  And using the older PCI card would work, but it is much slower as far as I can tell.
