1, Biostar...ew no. Just no. 2, You can only put one card in that board anyways, get one with 2 PCIe 16x slots

It will work fine with a powered 1x to 16x PCIe riser.

 

Also, this may not even be worth investing in since you don't have the parts already laying around and you're only mining with 5770's

 

Try to find cheaper used components if you can

Just letting you know. I crunched your numbers at 250w load and 200 hash rate each and .10c p kWh you're looking at closer to 2 months.

 

You could cut your costs a lot if you pick up a used motherboard and a Sempron

 

 

(this is also assuming difficulty and price stay consistent, which is typically not the case)

You might be better off just using the money to buy litecoins instead of investing in a system. The price seems to be rising and you would not have to worry about difficulties rising.
