There aren't any dual socket AM3+ boards that I'm aware of, and I'm also nearly positive that the FX CPU's aren't able to be used in a multi CPU system anyway, so no.
Think Socket G34 for that kind of thing from AMD.

DJDeCiBeL is correct. If you want dual CPU's you will need Opteron processors.

As mention with AMD you need opterons for multi socket support. With Opterons they actually make a few 16 core opterons all socket G34.
