Hello experts,

I am getting a EVGA E758-A1 3-Way SLI (x16/x16/x8) LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard.

The port config is something like...

1)--------- PCI X 16x
2)-- PCI X 1x
3)--------- PCI X 16x
4)----- PCI
5)--------- PCI X 16x
6)----- PCI

For the rig I'll also get 2 x GTX 285 in SLI and then I'll add a TV Tuner PCI-X card (low profile single slot) and a PCI Sound card also single slot.

WILL THEY FIT IN MY MOBO? :sarcastic: 

Can I connect the two gtx 285's in the first and third PCI-X16 Ports so the SLI bridge will reach both? or the SLI bridge is not long enough so they have to be next to each other?

Thank you for your help

The 285's in slots 1 and 3
TV Tuner in slot 5
Sound card in slot 6

The 285's need to be next to each other

Thank you!, one quick question...
the TVtuner's is PCI 1X card so it only takes a little bit of the PCI 16 X port... is that ok?
