Server 530ML and SSl1016 backup device

Hi all.
We are have ML 530 with 5300 Smart Array, Gigabite 6770 NIC, LSI22320-HP ULTRA 320 scsi card. I want connect Autoloader SSL1016 with Ultrium 460 drive to this server. What is the best place for all this cards in bus?
I need biggest speed for backup from network servers.
Install NIC and SCSI card to 64-bit/66MHz and 5300 card to 64-bit/33MHz?
Or if I'll use integrated SCSI for SSL1016 will unough?

Best regards,
Max.

Main rule
You need split between buses
Anything what installed on the same bus (one or more cards) will share: speed, resources.
Slowest card will slow down entire bus to designed speed + share.

SA5300 64 bit 66 MHz
NC6770 & U320 64 bit 133 MHz

Sorry forgot attachment

I would go with

SA5300 First to right slot & LSI at second keep them at Secondary Bus and NIC for Bus 3

Maybe NIC will be better instal in second 64/66 slot? Becouse almost all backup will be from network servers with gigabit NIC?

It thought that you might do that, try one way after second, and see where you get best performance on the write

If I have a chance I'll try both configurations.

Thanks.
