Asus released a motherboard for am3+ which basically has this built in. But it is expensive. Would an adapter be possible to make

No. Any particular reason why you need PCIe 3.0? It's not like any card can currently saturate the bandwidth of a PCIe x16 2.0 slot.

Best solution

it's not a matter of adapter... the bandwidth on the slot is different. in the coming months, hopefully other manufacturers will release motherboards with PCIe 3.0 slots too for AM3+
