I only see 7 PCIe x16 slots on the motherboard you linked. If you did a standard install with double slot video cards, that is all that will fit on the board. You can use PCIe x16 riser cables to get the video cards out of the way, then you have access to the 3 remaining x16 slots.
Your capture card plugs into 2 slots or covers 2 slots?

Yeah, I need raiser cables and splitters. The question is more about whether the PLX chips and the CPU can even keep up with something like that.
