No reason why it shouldn't work. It has two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots available.

I just finish upgrading my PC
Sabertooth X79
I7 3930K
32Gb Patriot
2 x 7970 CROSSFIRE...Now here is my proablem !! They don't work good together in my system. I allways get a continuous beeeep!
Sometimes is better just to run one card :-/
