thanks a stack for your help!

No problem. It is strange that the P222 generally costs more than the P420 after discounts etc... even though they're the same generation cards and the P420 tends to come with more FBWC as well. I've got a P222 card in my Microserver as I wanted the external port as well.

PCIe is backwards compatible. It will just run at PCIe 2.0 speeds.

and PCI-E 2.0 is plenty fast for this type of card.

Yeah I found that odd too and the one I found on ebay has a 2gb card in it and is only a $100 more expensive than the P222/512. I'm kinda undecided right now about the right way to go. I'll have a beer and a sleep on it and make my mind up in the morning.

 

Have a good one man,thanks again for taking the time share your knowledge.
