I'm want to crossfire two 4850 on this board

I was just wondering since the product title only says SLI does that mean I can crossfire two 4850 on this board?

So how can you tell if a board will support crossfire?

It will definately be in the feature list if it's supported :) 

Usually its Intel + ATI CrossfireX or AMD + NVidia SLI. Though there are some boards that do both (I stick with Intel/ATI, so not too sure on which do both sorry :(  )

Its always been Nvidia + Nvidia SLi and Intel and AMD + ATi! Before Core i7 SLi was only officially possible on Nvidia chipsets, be it for Intel or AMD processors. Now some X58 boards support crossfire and SLi as Nvidia has effectively been forced to licence the tech by being squeezed out of the chipset market.
Only way to tell is look at the motherboard features list - it will say.
