I've seen some pretty cheap pci-e cards out there. We ordered some for rpl here at work and they were around $99 (used for out Dell dual Xeon servers). I'm thinking they must not be TRUE PCI-e, but I dont know a whole lot about them yet. Anyhow, wish I could remember what card it was. Ordered 3 of them. Now if I can just convince them to order some 6800, I'll make them a deal and swap with my piece'o crap 5200...
