That's okay. They'll fit in the 32-bit slots and extra bits will hang over
the edge, and they'll act as 32-bit cards. (Really!)

But, without a 64-bit PCI bus, you aren't really going to see the full speed
improvement. And even then, that improvement isn't likely to be much in a
practical sense under most loads.
