I suggest you spend most of your time looking through motherboard
specs.  A surprising number of SIS/VIA chips don't do proper PCI DMA,
so even a single capture card is too much...

It's less likely an SMP motherboard would be so limited, but better to
check before you waste money...  And you might want to go for
Nvidia chipsets, rather than VIA/SiS, IMHO.
