    Does anyone know of a good computer case and mother board that can support having 4 6990 cards? Each one takes up two spots,and I've only found motherboards that can take 2 of them at most.

    "Slots: 8x PCI-Express 2.0 x16 Slots(four run at x1, two run at x8)"

    So if you would insert 4x 6990s, two would run at x8 Speed, instead of x16. It's a performance loss (so not recommended), but it's doable.

    You need four slots that run at x16.
    For example this motherboard got 4 times x16: "Tyan S7025, i5520 (dual Sockel-1366, triple PC3-10667R reg ECC DDR3) (S7025AGM2NR)".
