Any motherboard that supports 3 or 4 way SLI will also support 2 way SLI.

All motherboards based on the Intel X58, P55, P67, Z68, Z75, Z77, X79 will support both SLI and Crossfire.

You will have to check each motherboard to ensure that the second PCIe slot is actually present and wired up.

The H67 chipset does not support SLI and has only one full width slot, hence why it was not on my list. The nearest solution would be the P67 but those are getting hard to find. The Z68 has all the features of the P67 abd H67 combined.

The model of your motherboard is "P8H67-M LE". Asus's motherboard naming convention for mainstream motherboards includes the chipset in the name itself, most manufacturers do this. Enthusiast motherboards only ever use the best chipset available so they have more creative names, usually involving something dangerous. The chipset includes the chips on the motherboard that are produced by Intel or AMD and are designed to work with a specific socket and CPU series. In this case, the motherboard you have has an Intel H67 chipset and the motherboard is named after it.

Since the H67 chipset doesn't allow for the 16x PCIe link from the CPU to be split into two separate slots running at 8x each you can't use two graphics cards. You could however use a dual-GPU graphics card

ohhh thanks...ill remember this names Intel X58, P55, P67, Z68, Z75, Z77, X79...maybe ill buy P67..if i ever found a P67 chipset ill double my GTX 550ti or HD 7770 do you think my i3 2120 will bottlenecked it??

i'll pipe up and say, no.

however it is not desirable to SL or Xfire lower end cards, it is much better to get a single stronger card; likea 560ti or 7850. or better yet a 570 or 7870.

thats true but i dont have enough buget for a higher end gpus..now, you have a point.. stronger GPU SLI later right you can always SLI later..but for now if yopur saying that i3 will not bottlenecked it ill double my current GPU..

there will people, who do not have an i3, that will argue. i'd like them to post a benchmark otherwise.

this is me playing BFBC2 with an overclocked 550ti (1033 core speed) except for loading the game the cpu stayed below 50% load while playing.

so unless someone can explain that a SLI set up more than doubles the load; no it will not bottleneck the gpu(s)

edit: now multi tasking while playing will put a different spin on this. or playing BF3 MP maps.
