One PCI-E slot makes it none of the above, it cannot support more than a single card which rules out SLI and CF and doesnt have onboard graphics which rules out hybrid crossfire. It can only be used with a single GPU

No, but it supports AM3+ for a CPU upgrade.
Neither the boards you've posted supports SLI, nor true crossfire as X16/X4 scaling is horrible.

Cheapest Crossfire board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

See above.
The only AMD baords that support SLI is the ones with the Nvidia chipsets, then the 990X and 990FX boards.

its also a crossfireX

Crossfire doesn't do anything in your case, you have a GTX460.
Even if you switch cards to something ATI/AMD, X16/X4 scaling makes it worthless as 2 cards will turn out to be only 30% better than one.

But if you like the board...:>
