CAT 6e or CAT 7 NICs to N5k or N7k

Hi

We are a Dell shop and just purchase Cat6e NICs so what transcievers does Cisco provide to connect to the Nexus?

Anyone used the SFP+ twinax for connecting Dell servers at 10Gig. What model NICs do you use for these?

Link doesn't help. Basically my question is:

1. Does Nexus support Cat6e or Cat7?

2. Has anyone used a twinax nic for Dell boxes and if so what was their experience?

Thx

I've used the SFP+ and the twinax.  Both work fine.  We use Dell servers with Qlogic CNA's.

I am looking at the link:

Which ones did you use that can fit in a Cisco SFP-H10GB-CU5M?

Thx
