Solved MegaRAID x64 in PCI 32 slot? Tags: NAS / RAID PCI X64 MegaRAID Storage Last response: January 4, 2011 11:07 PM in Storage Share r042wal December 25, 2010 6:51:38 PM I have a new MegaRAID x64 PCI controller that I would like to use with a couple of Fujitsi U320 15k 147GB SCSI drives in a Dell Dimension T1500 workstation. The Dell only has 32-bit PCI slots. What kind of functionality can I expect? Thanks.

Please pay attention to the voltages section of the thread so you don't fry anything by mistake, but you should be okay as you are using a newer system. As to how fast, there is only one way to find out. RAID 0 will be faster than RAID 1 though. If you can live without video speed, go with a PCI video card and swap out the PCI-X card for a PCIe card.
