    say you had a 64bit PCI-X GBe card, plugged into a 32bit PCI
    motherboard. would such a PC experience any major lag on a GBe
    network...? i can't remember the max tranfser rate of a PCI bus... but
    GBe is in theory 125MB/s....?

    major bottlenecks will be
    a) whether your card can successfully negotiate speed/duplex with your
    hub/switch or other devices,
    b) are your cables Gb clean, old kinked walked-on Cat5 just doesn't cut
    it...
