Which i7 mobo for 3GFX cards + sound?

Specs: Windows 7
Hi there,

I'm doing some research on motherboards for my new Ci7 PC but can't seem to find any which would have enough space for 2 double slot GFX cards (nVidia GTX's) as well a third GFX card (nVidia 8800GT or so) and a soundcard.

I'm not fussy on whether it is a PCI or PCI-e x1 soundcard, but I just can't find any motherboards where the double slot GFX cards don't block all the other available expansion slots.

Does anyone know of a mobo which can take 2 double slot cards, a third single slot card AND a soundcard?

Thanks.

Hi

I looked at the x58's yesterday, it depends on your graphics cards width , there may be the last pci slot available on the Asus P6T (last pci ,slot may be free in sli)

have a look at the Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R, its slightly cheaper than the asus.

they both have onboard sound leaving you with a spare pci slot.

Well, if you had actually read my question you would realise the Gigabyte you link to is no use whatsoever as it only has two PCIe x16 slots when I specifically stated I would be using three GFX cards...

Onboard sound is a no go, again hence the request for a motherboard which would support a PCI or PCIe x1 soundcard.

Future replies please bear this in mind when suggesting a product.
