1. im getting a new computer,and I'm thinking of 2 480AMP's BUT there is a hatch...
I have WIFI, and i am going to use my wifi card in the new computer. So; can i use 2x 480's (takes 3 slots) AND have room for a PCI wifi card?
blue = for the GPU's
Yellow = for the wifi card
2. Is there a Sli bridge that is so long?

Depends on design of card-
usually 480 takes up 2 slots which are the one it is in and the pci below it. If the card you buy follows this design then the wi-fi should be fine.
IDK about sli bridge-contact nvidia.

As i said before-it entire depends on which way the cooler goes. Almost all coolers go down/AWAY from the ram so it could be FIVE slots and it would not matter. As long as it does not open upwards you are good.
