64-Bit PCI/PCI-X Slot?

I don't understand this. My U320 SCSI card says it should be connected to a
64-bit PCI/PCI-X expansion slot. This way the card get to it's full advantage in the 64-bit mode.
But where is mainboards that support this PCI-64 bit slot mode?
Everywhere i just see the usual 32-bit PCI.
Anyone?

U320 SCSI cards are designed for server environments. Only server-class mobos have the 64-bit PCI slot.

However, unless you plan on sinking some serious money into high-speed SCSI hard drives, or building a rather large array (like what I have in my siggy) it won't matter if you are in a 32-bit or 64-bit slot anyway, because you will have a hard time soaking the 100 MB/s or so theoretical bandwidth limit of regular PCI in anything but benchmarks.
