Ok my understanding at the moment is cloudy and I will have to break down and ask for help here. Hehe I hate to do it but best to do it and not ruin my setup..


I have an areca 1210 RAID card that requires x8 pci express slot. Currently, it's plugged into one of the extra pci express slots that is used for sli mode. In order for me to use sli mode for both of the 8800 gt's, I would need to remove the areca raid card which I don't want to do. Am I correct in thinking that placing the RAID card in the extra pci express x1 would cause the card not to receive enough power or would it work?

What motherboard would you recommend where I could run my 8800 gt's plus my RAID card which requires x8. This also need's to power my AMD 64x2 2.6ghz which I plan on Oc'ing to get some more life out of it till the next big upgrade.

Any help is appreciated.
