I've got a 2xPVR-250, 2xM179 system on a Intel D865PERLL motherboard.
4x250GB connected to a 3ware 7500-4LP setup as a RAID-5. Rock solid.
Intel makes a 6PCI motherboard as well - D865G series. Comes with
built-in graphics (but also has AGP if you want). For a backend you
don't need anything special video wise.
Get a good power supply - I'm using a Zalman 300W and no issues there
