so im ordering a new computer some time soon, and i'm building it so i could be able to sli at somepoint. right now im considering the asrock z68 extreme3 gen3. it has 2 pci-e slots with that are 2(am i correct here saying that there 2 slots away) slots away(or so it seems), and the GPU im considering to buy is the asus gtx570 DirectCU II(the MEGA monster). and if im not blind the mobo WILL fit two of them, though they will not have any space between them. and just now i read that the two cards should be atleast one slot apart for airflow. is this true? if so, please feel free to recommend another decent mobo for a decent price with the possibility for DCU II sli :)

Yes, the Asrock z68 extreme3 gen3 will support SLI and Crossfire technologies.

There will be a free PCI slot for airflow when running 2-way SLI.

You don't HAVE to have a free slot between cards, but it will help the GPU breath a little easier.
