Hi, I have aquired a supermicro X7DVA-8 with dual xeon 2ghz processors with 4gb of memory. I am looking to add a sound card, better video card and a video capture card.

2. video card

1 (x8) PCI-e slot
1 (x4) PCI-e (using x8) slot

PCI-X
2x 64-bit 100MHz PCI-X (3.3V) slots

PCI 1x 32-bit 33MHz PCI (3.3V) slot

Here is my cpu specs on the two processors:

General
Brand Intel
Series Xeon
Model BX805565130A CPU Socket Type
CPU Socket Type LGA 771 Tech Spec
Core Woodcrest

$200, but if can be done lower, better.

Unfortunately you have a bit of an interface shortage and a fairly tight budget for all three items. You are going to have to make some decisions about where you want to make an investment and where you want to hold back. I'll leave it to an American member to make further recommendations.
