I don't see how you couldn't...

If it has two PCI-e 16x and is SLI approved then I'm more than certain it will work.

Yup, you could even run 3 9800GTXs if you really wanted to.. That would require a different bridge than what your mobo came with, though. ($20 from EVGA)

All it would need is an extra bridge. :x The 9800GTX have two slots to suppose SLI brides.
