They do exist! :-)

I have a couple.

A Symbios/LSI U160 and a U320 SCSI card.  And a Intraserver SCSI
(NCR/Symbios 895 I think) + Ethernet (DEC) combo card.  Those work
perfectly and being NCR/Symbios/LSI are bootable from SRM or
ARC/AlphaBIOS. The U160 and U320 cards regularly pop up on Ebay. The
battery backed up + cache + RAID versions have come down in price
since industry is moving on to other things.

A Intel Gigabit Ethernet card.  It was marketed for "servers", but
just works in a Alpha.

A QStor SATA card, but it's been a while since I put it in a Alpha.
So I'm not sure of the status of that one.  There is a linux support
for it.  It works ok in x86.  And it works with some patches in
x86_64, so it might work in a Alpha.

Now if anyone has seen a 64bit PCI video card...
