Default Anyone have a P5E64 WS Evolution?

Need some questions answered.... very specific.

basically, I need a board that has at least:

1 x16 PCIe for GPU
1 x4 for FiberCard
1 x4 for future expansion
1 x1 for Firewire800 card.

Used a P5Q Deluxe, but when you put a x1 card into any of the x1 slots, the X4 clocks down to X1, limiting the fiber transfer speeds, which is NO good.

Think the P5E64 WS Evolution will work? Here is what is says regarding the PCIe bus:

“This motherboard also supports two Universal PCI Express x16 slots with a maximum speed of x4 or x1. The operating frequency of these slots change depending on the type of PCI Exress card you install.”

Check out the EP45-DQ6, it has a PCI-E bridge chip and thus two additional electrical PCI-E x4 slots.
