Default Gigabyte P35-DS3P Question

This Mobo has 2 PCI-E x16 ports. I cannot find anywhere that is says it is either crossfire or SLI. Where can I find out which it will do? Or is this a stupid question that I should already know.

For future reference, all P35 chipset motherboards only support Crossfire.

Okay so people are complaining about the EVGA 680 board. I don't think I will ever SLI but in case is this my only choice for High End MoBo SLI? Besides the 780?
