Except that nowadays, some cheap desktop-motherboards may not know how
to enable booting from such a card.
It's years since I used SCSI-drives for desktop-use - and then it was a
workstation-class Dual-Xeon board, Socket 604.
So I can't say if this is still true today - but I've read that people
have problems like that.
