My work stations use MSI ZH77A-G43 mother boards with Intel  I3 processors.  
The mb provides 3PCI slots and support + PCI2 &3 slots. 
Cost about  $120 at Frys electronics.

 One quick comment for anybody
 considering a new system to use with PCI
 hardware (not PCIe).
 There is only one chipset series that has native PCI
 support. All the
 others use a PCIe to PCI bridge to emulate a PCI port and
 this has VERY
 limited bandwidth.
 The chipsets you are looking for are the Q67 and Q77. These
 are
 specifically made to support native PCI hardware.
 All the best,
