Take a look at this NIC card I ordered it says PCI express but it has a non standard connector type. Is there any adapter that can be used to place this on a standard PCI express x 16 slot?

looks like a SCSI port.. definitely not PCIE
I do not think there is an adaptor.. but I am no expert on this.

Im afraid my knowledge ends at that for hardware KonfigurationKing.
I'm mostly a software guy.. Hopefully one of the other experts can help you with further knowledge

just a quick search seems like they exist but i cannot give you a surefire answer as to if it would work with your network card

This appears to be your card: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Original-Dell-Poweredge-R805-Dual-Port-10GBe-PCIE-Copper-Network-Cards-FX775-/350779251111   It's for Dell servers which may account for the different connector.

Yeah I was hoping someone could provide some information on this connector type. It seems I will have to return the item....

I got the impression that it was probably 'special' for the Dell servers.

It is so-called mezzanine connector for blade servers. It has PCI-E and blade rack infrastructure internal net connector. It is of no use at all in any other setting than dell blade server.
