I have 2 Quadro FX 3400 SLI and now I am looking for right motherboard supports Core Duo 2 and dual graphic PCIe x16.

I have found 2 motherboard which support 2 PCIe x16 are: ASUS P5B-DELUXE-WIFI
and Gigabyte GA-965P-DS4.

But I am not sure whether do they support dual graphic PCIe x16 SLI.

Any idea is appreciated.

Both have 2 PCI-x slots and will let you run 2 video cards but they will not let you SLI them. But you could run both with monitors attachd to both giving you multiple displays.
If you want SLI you need a motherboard with an nforce 4 SLi chipset. No Intel based chipset will suport any kind of SLi.
Unfortunatly i can't find any nforce 4 SLI chipset boards that support a C2D on Newegg. Maybe one will be able to support C2D with a bios update. Not sure though. From what i've read it's better to run a C2D with an intel chipset. I've read about problems between the nforce4 shipset and C2D's.

I don't understand how come they don't let me sli? SLI is supposed to connect 2 PCIe SLI GPU
