VXA autoloader on new server - hardware Q

VXA autoloader on new server - hardware Q

Using an Exabyte autoloader connected to a PCI-X Adaptec 29160 controller.  I am upgrading to a brand new server with only PCIe, so will need a new one.  Seems that the choices are very limited for PCIe SCSI.  I've found two:  LSI LSI20320IE and Adaptec 29320LPE, no 160 cards that I could find.  

Two questions:  1)  Anyone try one or both of these cards with an Exabyte?  2)  Given that the Exabyte uses a HD68 connector and these cards use a VHDCI68 connector, would there be any performance difference between getting a VHDCI to HD cable or using my existing HD68 cable and getting a small VHDCI to HD adapter for connecting to the new card?
