I no longer have three GTX 280's, but you can definitely fit three without issue, and four if you don't mind a bit of overhang at the bottom of the motherboard.

Nice review, I spotted a typo though.

The very last line in the "cons" section of the summary on the last page reads "No supremeFX audo card"

Very nice motherboard, but in my opinion you should be on an X58 mobo by this price point. Especially if you'd get an i7 860 on P55

No no, any case with 8 expansion slots will do if you want to use four dual-slot cards.

Really, the number of people who will run 4 GTX 480 is so few it isn't worth mentioning really. And those people won't be reading the comment thread of this article, most likely. They're too busy spending money haha
