I need a motherboard that has many PCI-E slots for graphics cards, is relatively cheap and available in the UK. I intend to use different graphics cards at first.
 
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

You could check this site periodically: http://www.wesellrigs.com
I think in a week's time, there could be something suitable for you.

Hi,

If you wanted to save some cash you could just get the Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3 for £65.99 - it's the mobo I'm using for mining. It has two full length PCI-E slots and two small 1x slots.

You can actually use all four PCI-E slots for mining, even the 1x ones, you just need to use a PCI-E riser extender cable, 1x > 16x. Although if you are planing to put four cards with risers inside of a case it may be a bit of a squeeze.

Cheers.

Edit: link to mobo:
