Wow nice looking motherboard check it out :<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Please meet ASUS P5W64 WS Professional Wall Street Quartet mainboard on i975X chipset that features four PCI-Express x16 slots that can accommodate four graphics cards and hence allow connecting 8 monitors to the system. More details in our review!<br><br><br>
The situation in the computer market has always changed rapidly, but these days everything happens so quickly that it looks like we are at some crucial turning-point. The computer world is standing on three foundations: the CPUs, the graphics cards and the mainboards, so any sort of changes will immediately be noticed.<br><br><br>
It took Intel some time to realize that frequency is not the most important thing in life. However once they realized it, they launched very successful Core 2 Duo processor family. Of course, they are not going to stop right there and although even the potential of dual-core processors is not yet fully utilized they are very soon going to move everyone to quad-core solutions. AMD is also trying to keep up with their 4x4 platform concept.</td>

Looks pretty cool. Although I'd say quad SLI is out of the question with the slots being right next to each other. Gigabyte released a quad-pci-e slot board some time ago. <br />

Do you suppose that it would work well for OC'ing a Pentium D 805? I'm guessing not. Based on what they though, maybe?

I assume the 64 in the board name means that it has 64 PCI-E x16 lanes? That's quite a lot, especially since all previous boards have only 16 lanes... The motherboard spacing also means that cards the size of the X1900 series that require two rear slots will not be able to fit 4 on the board unless it is an oversized/extended motherboard.

More likely 32 lines, with up to 8 lines per slot, or dual 16x.
