[Linux-PowerEdge] 10GbE for PE2900?

So, it appears that the Intel X520 dual-port 10GbE card will work in the 
PCIe x8 slot of the PE2900 (but obviously not at full wire speed on both 
ports simultaneously). The PE2900 has only a single x8 slot, and in my 
2900's this is occupied by a Perc 6/E. I do have a spare x4 slot, so if I 
move the Perc 6/E to the x4 slot and put the X520 in the x8 slot will it 
(a) work, and (b) compromise the stability or performance of the Perc in 
any way?
