Does-it mean that my box is not good enough to handle 4 spans?
It's a Dell PowerEdge R200 32bits with a dual core Intel Xeon E3110 3GHz CPU. What kind of hardware would you recommend to run the 4 spans? 
If this is the cause of my issue, I'd prefer to get a more powerfull server than a new card as it is the least expensive option...

Thank you!
