parallel scsi is becoming somewhat archaic, and probably getting harder 
to find, but I've always liked the LSI Logic scsi cards.

for PCI-X, that would be a LSI-U320, and for PCI-E X4, a LSU20320IE  
(both those have internal and external and external connectors on the 
same U320 SCSI channel)

a few more choices here, 
(some have dual channels, others have different connectors)
