wild thing

I have 3, 3080s. Don't believe I will be getting more. I have these motherboards.

Can I use what I have to put all 3 GPU's on one MB? Or should I invest in a better MB?

You can use any of those tbh assuming you're using risers with them too.

I took a look at the MSI board, and noticed that it has 4 PCIe X16 slots. That's rare; most boards have two max. You should be able to drop your three cards into this board and use them directly. If that doesn't work, you also have two X1 slots. You can plug one card into an X16 slot, and plug the remaining two into the X1 slots, using riser cables. These cables are available through Amazon, typically about $10 each, maybe less if you shop around. So the first board, the MSI board, should work fine for you. I didn't check the second. Hope that helps - Charlie
