Looking for upgrade path on server

I have the following server I bought from ebay but it is showing it's age (I stream 5-10 clients on my plex). Is there a mobo and cpu combo that will still work with the sata cards? I can't find any compatibility info online. I have 20 drives so I need both sata cards. 

Case: Supermicro SC846TQ-R900
Motherboard: Supermicro H8DME-2
CPUs: AMD Opteron 2419
SATA cards: Supermicro AOC-SAT2-MV8
USB3 card: Highpoint RocketU 1144C
Supermicro AOC-SIM1U remote management card

Very difficult, if not impossible, to find a current board with two PCI-X slots, best bet is to replace them with one or two LSI HBAs, also since those controllers don't work with many recent devices.
