It won't really matter. You'll be fine putting them in 3/4.

Lots of miss leading info in your post. Do a google on that board, it's actually pretty good. The ECS Black Series boards are very up to par.
HD5750 would be a downgrade, and HD4870 is more worth it at the moment for the price. Considering ATi is refreshing DX11 at the end of the year, buying now is pointless.
It's all about Price/Performance ratio.
XFX ATi cards are not bad, not all of them atleast. Some don't overclock well, or have lacking in the cooling department, but they're not horrible die on you cards.
