[DL580 G5] Using P400 & P800

We´re planing to implement some DL580 G5 with two Storage Controller

- P400 PCIe - for internal SAS Disks
- P800 PCIe - to attach two MSA-70

And following PCIe Cards

- NC380T NIC
- Dualport HBA for Backup (Emulex)

Were using the PCIe x8 Mezzanin Card in our servers.

How should we insert the cards to gain the best performance (with default bus assignment).

I thougt this is a good configuration:

Mezzanin Card Slot Nr 1: P400 (Bus 42h)
Mezzanin Card Slot Nr 2: HBA (Bus 42h)
PCIe Slot Nr 4: P400(Bus 12h)
PCIe Slot Nr 8: NC380T NIC (Bus 24h)

Any ideas how to set it up the best way?
