Re: What is PCI-X?

Some 32-bit PCI cards can run at 66 MHz or higher so you will still get a performance boost from plugging them into PCI-X slots. ETA: But be careful what cards you put on the PCI-X bus. A single 33 MHz card will drag the speeds of all other cards down to that level. ETA2: Related discussion
