Can a DL585 G7 handle 11 Firepro GPU's?

Hey all,

I'm trying to determine if a DL585 G7 can handle 11 single-slot AMD W5000 Firepro cards each with 75w TDP each... Anyone have any idea on this?

Also, when I say handle I mean provide enough for them electrically and provide enough PCI-E lanes that they show up in BIOS :) I realize driver limitations etc are a consideration.

So FYI for anyone wondering... the answer appears to be a giant NO. The servers I have can only handle 4 pci-e cards at a time. Even single slot cards that only draw 75w or less the DL585 and 580 G7 I have can only handle 4... seems the board is not running to PCI spec which is disappointing.
