No.

My A+ cert class we just build PC's using those motherboards last week, there not bad, the BIOS could be better though. This board doesn't support SLI Legally, but if you feel like doing a small hack w/ your OS, you could run SLI.

Trust me, I've used this board, and i've seen members w/ it on here. The card is just for switching between X16 or X8/X8.
I am going to quote my own post just to make sure the OP sees it. I see a lot of people saying 'It looks promising' but the fact is, it doesn't support SLI, just crossfire (Unless you feel like doing a small hack)

I love censorship.

It's an AMD board with and ATI IGP. Just from that alone, you can be pretty sure Nvidia ain't gonna be allowing SLI on it anytime soon.

SLI/XFire power connector
Thats what you were referring to on the product specification list, but you were referring to the connector. My mistake

What? Ive been here for quite a while.

Think of your fans like cars. Your sports car will be faster than a diesel truck, but when you put a 5 ton load behind both of them the truck will outrun the sports car every day. Which is why a GT with kill a Slipstream on a heatsink.

X58 boards do both, but as in both you mean SLI and Xfire not a Nvidia + ATI card, cause then, yeah, you'd be right
