good question. I have 3 Virtual machines I need a nic for each one I am sick of fighting Virtual nic's. This card has 2 nic ports for a total of four counting the one I have in the pci port.

Would you not be better of with 2 x X1 cards? which will not hamper with the X16 slot.

It is a matter of trying it, there is not a noticeable difference with the first slot running at X16 or X8 in graphics performance.
