    Hi,
    I'm trying to find a gigabit fiber NIC for a powermac g5. The one is found is the Stallion GE-II (http://www.axiontech.com/prdt.php?i...OMPARISONSID=dc366c76bc720a7494a85d18540019d9)

    I've tried a couple other cards that have been lying around, but none of them fit in the two pci slots. The pictures of the Stallion GE-II on the website show that the copper connectors don't match the motherboard PCI, causing me to hesitate before placing an order. Does anyone have any information that might help?
    Thanks a lot,
    Andrew

    Ahh - I have come to realize that this card in 64-bit PCI, (same as PCI-X?).

    Now it's just next to impossible to find a mac-compatible, 32-bit PCI gigabit fiber NIC.
