If you are talking about this one: ASUS 182185 ASUS SKT-775 P5VD2-MX SE S/V/L M-ATX 1066FSB Motherboards Components the answer is no.

What size resolution do you play on? Theres really no pint with 2 gfx cards unless its very high. A single 8800gts is more than most people need. In the UK try these sites if you want an SLI board.

Tekheads.co.uk

Components » Motherboards » AMD AM2 SLiReady - Overclockers UK

Hope this helps, also bear in mind if you do opt for 2 of those, even NVidia recommends you don't even bother to benchmark 2 8800gts' unless you have at least a quad core as whatever cpu you have it would be a bottleneck to them.

Performance actually suffers a little using 2 graphics cards (in certain circumstances) or renders no improvement at all running at lower than 1600x1200 resolutions. If you don't run at this or higher resolutions, save some money and stick with one card. Honestly it's not worth the money unless you're running a 24" monitor or greater. I know this from experience.
