It's not SLI-ready, few good Core 2 Duo motherboards are.
The good ones use Intel chipsets, which do not support SLI. You'd have to get an nForce-chipset mobo to get SLI, but I hear they're not good overclockers. In my (humble) opinion, SLI is not worth it anyway.

Also, I just recently bought a P5B-Deluxe, but it hasn't arrived yet. I'll let you know my opinion of it once I get it.

yeah i guess your right about SLI, i can prob just get one 7950GT and get great fps on any game anyways. ill prob just spend more money on the processor. Ill get like the E6600 cause it has 2x the cache of the E6400.

A 7950GT will run pretty much anything on high settings. And as many have said before, the E6600 is currently the "sweet spot" when it comes to processors.
