Default need a socket 939 mobo with 3 pcie slots

I have 2 7800gtx's with a 2 slot cooler on each. Planning on buying a SAS card, but i will need a 3rd pcie x8 slot. The one on the board is only x4.

I know there are a few boards out that have 3 slots, but they are close together and the 2 slot cooler wont fit. I know there is also a 4 slot from gigabyte that has the double spacing, but it is an intel board. Wish they would make an amd version.

Im just wondering if anybody has seen any boards ?
