I have a (9550SX-12) box in front of me and it's PCI-X not PCI. This is one
of the newest boards we are testing and all of the boards we have tested in
the past have been PCI-X. They do offer boards with different cable
connections (the MI) and It does get a bit confusing but as far as I know all
of this line is still PCI-X.
If they offer a PCI version, it's not my area as all our MBs need PCI-X or
PCI-e but I would bet a quick email to their support would confirm such.
The point is they have awesome hardware and provide excellent Linux support in
Best of luck,
