The AMD 880G north bridge chip has 22 PCI Express x1 lanes (the same number used on AMD 870 and AMD 890GX chipsets), with seven internal engines to control them (AMD 890GX has eight engines). The Biostar TA880GB+ comes with only one PCI Express x16 slot and two standard PCI slots. The manufacturer could have installed at least one PCI Express x1 slot on this motherboard. If a dual-slot video card is installed in the PCI Express x16 slot, you will “kill” one of the standard PCI slots.
