Adding NICs to Dell R420

Hey Guys,

I have a Dell R420 server. We have dual 6GB HBAs installed in them. I have 2x NICs on the server, and I need to add 2 more, can i add more NICs to the server?

Let me know if you need a pic.

I don't think you have any more available slots on the server.

PCIe slots  
2 PCIe slots  With 2 processors:  1 x16 slot with x16 bandwidth, 3.0, half-height, half-length  1 x16 slot with x16 bandwidth, 3.0, full-height, half-length  With 1 processor:  1 x8 slot with x4 bandwidth, 2.0, half-height, half-length  1 x16 slot with x16 bandwidth, 3.0, full-height, half-length

yeah...if you already have 2 HBAs installed you probably maxed out your expansion slots
the lower-end model servers don't have a lot of expansion options; the R520 has 4 slots

I see. Is there a Single HBA/Dual NIC card from Dell by chance?
