It has the slots but does anyone know if the width of the 5850s will block both PCIe slots from being used? A post on NewEgg indicates it would. Thanks!

The primary video slot is bounded by the 2 PCIe slots on either side. The 2nd video slot is bounded by 2 regular PCI slots, so the video card would need to be 3 slots wide to cover both PCIe slots. Looks like you loose one of each.
