Hey there guys

i'm looking into getting a raid system i want to get the promise raid tx 2000 card, it says that it supports 64 bit pci slots, which i dont have..

Does it matter difference in performance??

A lot of the Promise cards have support for both 33 MHz (32-bit) and future 66 MHz (64-bit) PCI buses, so the only advantage on current motherboards is that a high PCI clock doesn't affect the card; however, your other cards won't be as friendly to it. There is no difference in drive speed, however, since the card will be operating at 33 MHz/32-bit.
