Default Wanted - Folding Farm Motherboard

So I am considering putting together a dedicated folding farm.

To do that I would like a motherboard that offeres 3-4 PCI-e slots that can house multiple GPUs, Lets say 8800 GTS 512 (3-4 of them).

Now the system will be primarily for folding and maybe web access. In any case what mother boards are available that can do this. Preferably one that takes DDR2 PC-8500 Crucial Ballitix ram as I currently have 4 gigs of it sitting here collecting dust.

Of course I would also need a proc and PSU that could handle the system.

I do not need high end gear, just gear that will do the job and is very affordable. Yes used is fine.

If there is something in a 939 board thats cool to, I could always transfer rig #2 and save a few bucks.
RIG #1 - Intel E8400 // TRU-X 120 w noctua NF-P12 // GA-X38-DQ6 // GTX285 OC // 8g Ram OCZ Fatal1ty PC8500 // X-Fi Elite Pro sound // z-5500 speakers // OCZ 850w Gamer XTream PSU // WD Raptor 150g // Seagate 1Tb // 2xSeagate 500g ex// Logitec G-15 keyboard // Vista Ultimate 64bit
RIG #2 - AMD64 3500+ // Asus A8N-E // 8800GTS 512 OC // Enermax Liberty SLI 500W Modular PSU // WD Caviar 250g
