Guys, quick question, as i have to order the Rig parts now!

This Board: (cheapest suitable and avaiable there)



Can i plug two 5830 or 5870 in the 16x Slots?
AND plug 1x -> 16x flexible Extender Adapters from China
in the 1x Slots?

Or is the GPU covering the whole slot so that nothing would fit??

Since these slots are designed for dual graphiccards i guess it will fit.
It might even work with the x1 -> x16 adapter, but beware that you probably won't be able to fit that 3rd card into a computer case (other slots blocking)

Oh that might be tight. I guess you have more luck with the x1 slot on the right hand side - it probably won't be covered.
Just to make sure i would buy only two graphiccards, the adapter and try it out first.
