    Hello Everybody!

    I have the following problem: In my company we have an IBM x3500 797722U Server and we need to connect a sound card. We've already try a Sound Blaster PCI card but the server did not even started when plugged.
    I found the following information in the server manual:

    PCI slot 6 supports half-length 5.0 V PCI adapters only.
    PCI slot 1 supports half-length 3.3 V PCI adapters only.
    PCI slots 2 trough 5 support full-length 3.3 V signaling adapters only.

    The PCI configuration:
    - Slot 1 is a PCI-Express x8 slot with x4 links, PCI Express 1.0a compliant.
    - Slot 2 and 3 are PCI-Express x8 slots with x8 links, PCI Express 1.0a compliant.
    - Slots 4 and 5 are PCI-X 133/64 slots, PCI-X 2.0 compliant.
    - Slot 6 is a PCI 33/32 slot, PCI 2.2 compliant.

    I believe the useful information for this purpose is only this:

    PCI slot 6 supports half-length 5.0 V PCI adapters only. Slot 6 is a PCI 33/32 slot, PCI 2.2 compliant.
    So, here is my question: Which sound card (vendor/model) do you suggest for this server? I am not looking for the best sound card, but any that works!

    Thank you for your time.

    SERch!
