Don't know. Routing PCI (Classic) over PCIe: Is this a good idea when
realtime matters? I have a Supermicro Mainboard with two Intel Xeon CPUs
and there are some xruns from time to time I can't explain. The PCI-Slot
is also routed over PCIe...

I have to test them, first, before recommending but I'm about to switch
to AMD, because they still deliver PCI-classic-support without any
workarounds on the latest CPU-generation.

Search for MoBos with A88- and A78-chipsets f.e.!
Unfortunately, latest Opterons doesn't support  PCI-classic AFAIK.
