The Asus A8N32 SLI does and there are a few others but that is one I know for sure. The performance increase that you minimally get from a board that supports that does not justify the expense in my opinion.

I would buy an SLI Motherboard, and it you have the money for two 6800GS's then you can afford to get one 7900GT. The 7900GT is comparable to a 7800GTX overclocked (eVGA, BFG). When your 7900GT by itself slows your system down you can add another and gain a performance boost.

If you interested, the ATI CrossFire Radeon XPRESS 3200 chipset supports native Crossfire with 2x PCI-E x16. Also, you won't be needing a special crossfire edition card anymore (as long you get a 1800/1900 series card, for 800/850 you WILL need a crossfire edition card.)

Check these out:

Also, the full bandwith of dual PCI-E x16 is rarely used, but you wil be more future proof.
