I'm trying to find a PCI-X graphics card, although this is proving to be difficult as people mislabel PCI-E as PCI-X. PCI-X is the 64 bit version of PCI-X and looks like this.



and this



Any links to places with prices would be ideal

Either that or has anyone got a PCI 3D Labs Oxygen, ATI FireGL or Matrox Video cards lying about?

PCI-eX is nothing to do with PCI-e. PCI-eX is not exactly new stuff, PCI-X was designed jointly by IBM, HP and Compaq to increase performance of high bandwidth devices, such as Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel, and processors that are part of a cluster.
finding mainstream GFX cards that utilise PCI-eX will be like trying to find a needle in a whole field of haystacks. try looking for Apple oriented products...
