I just built a new gaming PC and installed a ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard. It is too small! I have both PCIe (16 slot) used with graphic cards crossfired connect and between then I have a sound card in a PCI. It is a very very tight fit. So I'm looking to change out my motherboard - one that has more space between cards and/or more slots all together. Any suggestions?

Take a look at some higher end ASUS mobos. Or Gigabyte, where do you shop?

since just about ALLmotherboards have the PCI slot between the PCI-E x16 slots you might be better off considering getting a PCI-E x1 sound card to put in the first slot. (between the cpu and first graphics card)
