What Good Are PCI-X Slots ?
Not to be confused with the various PCI-E (PCIe) slots.
These are essentially PCI slots with a larger bandwidth.
They are found in Workstation motherboards and computers made several years ago. Intel and HP were once big on them.
-- 133 MHz PCI-X slot
-- 100 MHz PCI-X slot
I have these in an 8 Gb ECC Reg RAM HP dual-Xeon WS I am soon going to upgrade with WIN7. I'd like to get some benefit out of them.
Any suggestions or cautions?

hard drive controllers would be one thing.
some of them, you can use standard PCI cards (video, sound, etc) in as well.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green
