first two run at 8x and the third one runs at 4x. if you use one card then the first one runs at 16x and go to tigerdirect.com they have it for 199$ or zipzoomfly for 219 with shipping

by first two you mean 2 on the left right? anyways do you think I could fit a sound card and a NIC card in between and on the side of them?

no you need to fill both blue slots first. for example 1 gb stick in one blue slot and and another 1 gb stick in the other one.
