There seems to be 2 interfaces, SATA II and PCI-E.
Am I correct that PCI-E is basically not a seperate hard drive, but instead is a pci card?
If so, is there a difference between pci-e and pci-e X 4?
My servers are older, but still reasonable (2 xeon 3 gig processors, 8 gigs of ram). But they only take scsi hard drives - they're older dell 1750's. Since I can't install a SATA II drive, could I instead buy a PCI-E SSD drive, remove the scsi drives and just install the PCI card/drive into the free slot?
That would save me upgrading the entire server (I've got a complete backup hardware so I'm happy keeping the existing machines). Which raises my last question, the machine is 32 bit, will that affect the pci-e? I don't think it should.
