WTB PCI IDE/66MB/s+ Card

I am looking for an IDE/ATA 66MB/s PCI Card minimum for my Powermac Smurf Tower. I was thinking of maybe $30 max with shipping or so. I really need to bump up the driver performance in my machine. it feels soooo sluggish. I would prefer a 100MB/s card, but would be will to take a 66MB/s Card

Let me know. you can email me at:

after reading that

I meant it to come out and 66MB's or faster. I really need a card for this, as I am feeling the limitation on it. Especially since my Hard drive is about 160GB and the system can only support 128GB. I almost got the hard drive on it full, and would love to use the rest of it.

reconsidered and bought a SATA card, with an IDE->SATA adapter and a cable. was slightly more expensive, but will be much more worth it. I looked at an old forum I made about price checking the cards, and I think Jon listed a card. sadly, the company no longer sells it for that price (went up by $20 I think) and I still got it, but it cost me $59 w/ shipping. I then bought a SATA->IDE adapter and cable for $21 shipped

I just needed a setup that was bootable that will give me a kick, rather than having to buy a CPU upgrade (more expensive) that would still be limited to the 33MB/s stock IDE. *blech*
