Apparently the Asus P5N-D has two PCIe 2.0 slots and for only $150. If nVidia ultimately ends up being the better choice, this will most likely be the mobo I'll suggest. It's looking more and more like the HD 4870 will better suit his needs, though.

As Chozart said, they're 16x, but they're 8x in sli. I'd get the Evga one if you were to take the nVidia route, which at this point in time isn't the favorable one.

Everything I've read indicates the Asus P5N-D operates at x16 on both slots in SLI, but that doesn't matter. I read a review on the board and it apparently doesn't overclock very well.
