Double wide PCI HD2 protools cards in New MAC PRO

Basically I'm wondering how to install my older double wide PCI HD2 cards for my new Mac Pro. I just bought a Magma Expansion Chassis, but they don't have double wide slots in them which I thought it did. So how do I go about installing double wides in the magma, is there a card or motherboard I can buy for the Magma chassis that will allow me to install my double wide cards?

Mac Pro does not support PCI, only PCI-e. Do you have the PCI-e to PCI Magma chassis?

PCI is not compatable with PCI-e,

The Magma Chassis will work if you have the PCI version,

You are screwed without a chassis- even then they do not work 100% as expected- esp if you want to use Logic or Performer as your front end.
