Hello and welcome to the forums :) 
That board has NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI
It only support SLI so you can't use CrossFire on it(unless with hacked drivers and that's not recommended)

You might have to return that motherboard if you do plan to crossfire... Get the msi 790fx-gd70... You can get full x16 crossfire support on that and still run am3 chips, just like the one you're asking about....

Well, My fiancee got the vid card for me! But I am still thinking about getting a 480 or 2 I don't know tho... What are these hacked drivers I am hearing about?

I don't know about that but it uses a SLI board so it won't support CF(Unless they are using hacked drivers)
