    Is there any reasonable solution to upgrade the old gal to 10G? I'm moving to the future so my main PC and NAS can have a faster link, and if the MP can't be upgraded easily enough I won't sweat having a switch with more than 2 ports.

    I'm searching too, reading about people flashing Intel cards and such.. yuck. Even the non-bootleg cards are $500.

    i use a myricom 10G XFP card which works fine, it needs as expected by age 4 lanes to work so is ideal for slot 3/4.

    Has osx drivers by manufacturer, they also survived to 10.13 fine.

    Paid less than 50€ used, only downside is that they get fairly hot as server design.
