Not quite the HOWTO I am looking for / need. This is more a hotwo on one 
option rather than on the different options available.

I think such a howto might be useful and would be willing to write one if 
people would be willing to answer questions coming from an ignorant (in the 
field) person's perspective.

This would need a motherboard with 3 free PCI slots right?

These options would just need one free PCI or PCIe slot. Not bad, portability 
may be an issue. Do I build a rack with a silent rack mount PC, 3 adat 
interfaces (8 ins each)
