Can I use an SLI video card on a non SLI motherboard?

I was wondering if you could use an SLI video card on a non SLI motherboard. I don't actually plan on using two video cards so I was wondering if I could just use the SLI video card normally.

The parts I'm working with are:
"GIGABYTE GA-P55M-UD2 LGA 1156 Intel P55 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard"
"GIGABYTE GV-N98TSL-1GI GeForce 9800 GT 1GB Silent Cell 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card"

Yeah... And you can use cards like the GTX 295 (sli single card) or radeon 5970 on a non-sli motherboard. Almost all mid to high end cards are "sli/crossfire ready", but they don't need to be used in sli/crossfire to work.

Yes you can use it. Almost all cards are CF/SLI compatible nowadays. It doesn't matter, you'll be fine.
