So I recently bought a gtx 280 and will have a new one on the way soon. I want to keep my bfg 9600 ocx as a physx card. In the future(a month or 2) I want to go 3 way sli and still use the 9600 as the physx. Buy I need a new mobo because its not a sli board. I no this is overkill, but this is what I want.

I should add that I just upgraded to a core duo quad processer so I do not want to upgrade to an i7 any time soon. I saw the evga classified board and thats what I want but its i7.

Hopefully someone can help because there are so many mobos out there.

ps. I have a sound card so that takes up a pci express x1 slot.

thanks a lot!!!

I was thinking something like
x1 ------------------ x1 ----------------- x1
x16 ------------------ x1----------------- 16
16 ------- or --------- x16---------------- or ---------- 16
16------------------- 16 --------------- 16
x1------------------- 16 -------------- 16

thanks again!!
